I know that for words starting with a certain letter with a labiodental sound after την, the "ν" drops, but, isn't it optional?

For instance, I googled both "θέλω την λίστα" and "θέλω τη λίστα" and the first one got more results

According to the spelling taught in schools today, the final nu gets dropped before β, δ, γ, φ, θ, χ, μ, ν, λ, ρ, σ, ζ (except in the combinations μπ ντ γκ): http://ebooks.edu.gr/modules/ebook/show.php/DSDIM-F102/580/3784,16613/

But the rules for this have changed a bit over the years, so I'm not sure whether την λίστα is completely wrong or just old-fashioned.
