It's likely that 50% will move lists, that should be set somewhere more
around 10%, really. I've been subscribed for a year or two and this is
the first I've seen about the list. I'd be surprised if 5 people switch
lists, I could be wrong, but that's probably how much people care. It's
not like this is a high volume list, but I gotta say, a lot of my posts
went astray through missing header.
