Fair enough.  Which type are we?

Subscribers only.  This should probably be advertised somewhere.

Personally, sending an email to a list I wasn't subscribed to would 
never even occur to me.  It would be like posting to a newsgroup I never 
read: roughly akin to shouting a question off the side of a cliff then 
walking away.  But perhaps that's just me. :)

I have to admit it is a toss up.   I set this list to "subscribers only" because I get enough spam as it is (some from open lists, which I find especially annoying).  However it is sometimes annoying to have to subscribe to a mailing list just to ask 1 question about the subject matter.
