Agreed.  Not much point of an announce list if everyone spams all the
lists anyway.  Getting 3 emails instead of 1 is a bit annoying,
especially since the point of the announce list existing is that the
other lists are relatively high traffic.

As for people not being subscribed, well... if you want announcements,
subscribe to the announce list.  Duh. :)

There's an easily accessible archive on the web anyway
