i'm an active and very pleased user of vserver, but only passive mailing
member. thank you very much for that software.

as everybody else i receive a lot of spam everyday, many from mailing
lists. if the mailing lists were closed, i had far less spam.
i share the opinion of those who say that if somebody wants something
then he can subscribe. with mailman there is a _nomail_ option, so it is
possible to write mails but not receive any email sent to the list.

if the list is closed, we don't need this. he could have more spare time :-)

i don't think anyone has a choice here, if he wants to participate on
the mailing list (and the list is open) :-)
if the list is closed, we don't have to tolerate any spam, so we can
skip this question.

as i don't have time to follow irc, i am not always online and want to
access the news and important information (for example some
possibilities i don't know), for me (and people like me) email is the
best platform. (and i don't like browsing the web, i prefer receiving
everything to one place: my mailbox :-)
my answers: NO, YES, YES, YES
