Generally speaking, is there any difference between saying "in a list" vs. "on a list"?
There's already a similar question, but that was about one specific example with a specific answer; if possible, I'd like to know if there's a general rule or if there are situations where one form would be preferred over the other.
"to be in the list" vs. "to be on the list"
"to save in the list" vs. "to save on the list"
"to put in the list" vs. "to put on the list"
