I think that's not a wise approach, as many lurkers will unsub rather
than complain.  It's not good to lose lurkers, as they might just be
waiting for a really fascinationg (to them) aspect of DotGNU to come

Hmm... let's have a address@hidden list for pnet bug reports and
related discussion.   Then it's up to everyone personally to decide
whether they're interested in pnet bugs or not.

BTW, as part of the DotGNU website revision, I'm planning to replace
the Mailman list subscription/unsubscription pages with a single page
for all lists, that gives for each list a brief rationale (like
"subscribe to this list if you're interested in XXX") as well as
button to subscribe or unsubscribe.

I hope that'll help resolve the "don't know where to look" problem.

Greetings, Norbert.
