First, we're planning a one-way list that our organization will use to send
updates and news to subscribers and not accept postings from members. We
have several categories of messages that may be sent out depending on the
program the message pertains to.  We're weighing the benefits of using one
main list with different topics setup for each category against using
separate lists for each category. Does anyone have an opinion about using
topics instead of creating separate lists in our  situation?

Second, one major disadvantage I can see in using topics is that as the
admin, you can't see which topics a member has selected to receive. So,
there's no way to judge the effectiveness/popularity of your topics. Is
there some way to see this?
