I agree as well. In the last days, there have been several posts by
authors who clearly missed ongoing discussions following from an
original cross-post because further discussion took place exclusively on
an unsubscribed list. Can we shut down numpy-user? It's only been around
a couple weeks, and I bet everyone subscribed there is also on
numpy-discussion.

Cheers!
