I am subscribed to too many mailing lists now, and I have been subscribed to
many others that I can't keep up with. Most of the messages in high-volume
mailing lists are not relevant to me so I waste a lot of time if I try to
keep up with them. So yes, I am very reluctant to subscribe to (yet another)
another mailing list just to post a message and then receive another flood
of messages that don't concern me.

The (main) Cygwin mailing list is an example of a high-volume list. I wrote
a few paragraphs intended to help other understand how to install it and I
put that in my web site. It was not my intent to leave it there permanently,
but the only comment I got back was that they did not want to have the
documentation spread out in many places. So experiences such as that has
contributed to my attitude.
