Could someone please delete it? Thanks!

The most important reason for Ubuntu translation teams not using Launchpad mailing lists, is that we encourage a model with a few translation reviewers (i.e. the members of the moderated or restricted team) and many translators (i.e. those who can only submit suggestions). Launchpad mailing lists only allow members of the team as subscribers, which would leave all non-member translators out of the mailing list.
