There is more than one way to retrieve the messages from this list.
Some people, for example, just use the online archive, because they find
checking a website occasionally more convenient than being subscribed to
another list.

Others might use a mail<->news gateway such as news.gmane.org, so they
are not directly subscribed to the mailing list.

Many people also have multiple email addresses, and the address which
they post with might not be the same address which they have subscribed.
(I don't even *know* what address I used to subscribe to this list.)
