In over 1 year, there are now a grand total of 89 such messages (at
most) that have been sent to the list, vs. 5 messages just sent now
(6 when you count this one) discussing whether or not they should
continue to be sent here.
So far, there has also only been one complaint or request to change
this, as far as I'm aware. (Personally, I like them just fine where
they are. Among other things it makes it easy for someone to answer
the ticket via email, which is one of the reasons I asked for it to
be set up this way in the first place.)
