Another tack (don't know which one makes more sense) would be for each
server to send a monthly reminder to each member of ANY of its hosted lists,
reminding them of ALL lists that they're a member of.  That way if you have
a site hosting a bunch of lists (some seasonal, some temporary, others
topical etc) you would just get one message per month from that site.  Might
help at least some people.
