I don't see how the volume has anything to do with this.  It's
discourteous to subscribe anyone to a list without their knowledge;
I would take a dim view if you had subscribed me, and subscribing
a mailing list is no different.

In addition, the admin messages sent by mailing lists have no place
on; that alone is justification for Chris to block
Shaolin mailings.

If you posted admin messages directly Chris may well block you too!

I'm sure there's no objection to your posting information useful to
Cygwin users.
