As there are no adverts on their site, why would they want you clicking around on the site? That uses resource and costs them money.
It was primarily envisaged as a mail service. The web side was added because some folks wanted it.
As a group owner I can download zipped archives of all content.
The ability for members to download the message archive as a zipped file is configurable by the list owner.
