Here is my analysis of lists.laptop.org.  Some calls are easy, others people
may feel differently about.   Feel free to follow the hotlinks in the first
column and make your own annotations and recommendations.  In any event, I
think lists targeted for closure or merging should be given the chance to
argue for their continuation.

The real question is who will make the final judgement calls and who would
implement them?

The link I sent earlier was wrong, this page should be updated if any
changes are made.
