Yes indeed. I'd say it's just pure lazyiness. This is what they said in
response to your comments.
Our Mailman is set-up to serve a specific use case. All configuration
choices made are to that end. You are requesting that we make changes to
our overall service so that the Discussion lists can serve a purpose that
they are not intended for and can already be achieved a number of
different ways. It's not going to happen. All of the requested changes
are theoretically possible, but they aren't likely to happen any time
soon, if ever.
We will not be changing our Discussion list service so that it can act as
an Announcement list service. We already have an Announcement list
service that meets that need.
They want me to use their ad-hoc announcement list feature which is
useless. I already have Mailman subscribers in the hundreds and there is
no straightforward way to have them moved to their DH list without
resending confirmations out to hundreds of people. Moreover, their ad
hoc announcement list is not only feature poor, but non-free and I don't
want to use it largely for that reason.
