Except it doesn't really work like that. I'm on 10 lists but only two of
them would reach even 10 messages per day. I don't know the exact statistics,
but you'd need at least 20 of debians smallest lists to equal debian-devel.
That means you can be on 21 lists and not even double your volume.

Not many lists make 50/day.
