From my perspective, it shows that the intended audience did not read
that list or that particular mail or subscribed after it was sent...
Also, how often do you view advertisements on TV for say food, movies or
other items? Once? no, often! Why? Advertising is something that has to
be done as an on going process to get maximum results. Getting your
message to its intended target is a hard thing. How about having 'text
ads' on the pages of the Debian site that showcase a 'request for help'
or similar?
