As far as I understand there is no centralized tool allowing users to
manage their mailing list subscriptions. Each ML has to be individually
Also MLs seem to assume that only messages from subscribed users are
allowed through (even though there is a nice message that informs you
if you are not yet subscribed that the message you just sent is
"pending approval", in my recent experience none of the messages I sent
this way actually went though).
So the business logic here entails that sending message to several MLs
pushes you under the following bus:
your messages will land on the "waiting for approval" purgatory and
probably won't ever go through
you have to manually subscribe to every single ML you want to write to
keep track of all of them (to avoid sending a message to the one ML you
forgot you weren't subscribed to); and you have to add filters to your
email client (as opposed to a centralized web manager) to avoid
drowning in a tsunami of emails; and you have to be empirical about
this, making sure your filters don't get false positives or negatives.
Not a cool dilemma. I mean ML clearly have their purpose but if I
didn't miss anything obvious, this does not help with making the ML for
attractive to people born after 1995.
Am I missing the obvious?
Also what's the margin for feasible improvements? How strong do we need
to push to shake up status quo?
