Fine, let's drop the metaphore, it's getting stupid anyhow, and this 
shoul be the last thing on the matter anyway, cause we are getting way 
offtopic :p Anyway:

People like/want point and click software/computers. Hell I want that, 
that doesn't mean they/I want windows/outlook/msn
Thunderbird is broken? Fine, the 'sane' thing would be 'compatible' with 
both categories of users until list handling becomes a defacto standard 
with mail-clients.

Of course this is all moot, I do agree with you, as I have been from the 
beginning. And I know there is a mailling list addon for thunderbird, I 
suppose I could always install that :) my point was simply, 99% of the 
population isn't gonna bother, and deff. not gonna start using mutt. 
(Mutt is a fine client).
