Hi John; Yes good point -- But with an efficient e-mail client like
mutt it's trivial to wade through a high volume list, in my opinion. ;-D
BTW this list isn't that high volume compared to some social media.

Still, I think my point about USERs being impacted still stands; The
announcement should go to the USERs list as well! Too much specificity
gives the results seen here; most missed the announcement.

But if one needs to sign up for yet another list than so be it. <sigh>
