Sorry, I don't have hard numbers or statistics to publish...
Only subjective impressions.

Wow, I did not know it was "infamous"! :-)

I see, thanks for the explanation. I'be been thinking on perhaps doing
something like this for a while, creating a "planetccrmanews" list in
addition to "planetccrma". 

I have to come up with a plan on how to do this (ie: transfer current
list subscriptions to the new list before announcing it?), and of course
some time to actually do it :-)

I can think of (at least) one downside to this, anyone else with
comments regarding a new list for announcements only?
