I am aware that there are several subscribers, but that is not the
same as several readers.  I am subscribed to several mailing lists
which I rarely read, due to the volume of email I receive.

Based on the lack of response from the postings on the list, I
concluded that there were few regular readers of the list.

I fail to parse this.  Please elaborate.  I do not want a monopoly on
any address, so if this can be changed, I am happy to help.

It was not convenient for me either, but I saw no good alternative if
we wanted the mails to make it to the mailing list archive and
subscribers.  What did you want me to do with the emails?  Throw them
away?  Reject them?
