My 2 cents:
"If it ain't broke, don't fix it". :)
We might have grown to know each other on the old list but things change
over time for the better and I say not to look back to what might become a
problem again in the future which would make us all flock back here. In
moving back, we could also lose many CoCo users who have come to join us
since the move from the old filthy list. We already lost many from the old
list due to spam issues and arguments about such, etc. and things have been
so nice here that I would never even fathom the thought of moving back to
the old list if there is even the possibility of things becoming a problem
