Why do most of your messages sound so negative and accusatory?
I am aware of the problem -- and unfortunately there isn't an easy
solution. With over 150 lists, and thousands of subscribers,
automatically subscribing people to a list, to which they did not
subscribe may cause problems, create resentment etc. I know the
multiple messages does too. A future version of the software is
intended to be more user-centric rather then list-centric as it is
now, and should have tools to prevent this from happening.
I will investigate other possible solutions in the mean time and see
if there is a relatively easy solution.
I would like one at least as much as you -- as I am subscribed to all
150 plus lists.
