All sorts of reasons. One of the main ones being that list servers are
sometimes slow and this delay can harm useful discussions. This way a
group can have a useful discussion with quick replies and the list
server will catchup sometime later.
Fortunatly we have a mailing list manager that allows you to choose
which way you want it.
Have a nice day,
