The reason for the complaint (and the reason the freebsd-test list exists)
is that you just "inconvenienced" thousands of people who subscribe to
this list.

As usual, this resulted in a discussion that is further inconveniencing
people ...

The point behind that freebsd-test list is that it is configured in exactly
the same manner as other FreeBSD mailing lists.  If you can subscribe and
post to freebsd-test, then you will be able to use the exact same procedure
to subscribe and post to any other FreeBSD mailing list.  So there is no
reason to ever send test messages to anything other than freebsd-test.

I'm not saying this to berate you, Jean-Pierre.  My purpose is to clarify
this for anyone who may be reading, or may in the future read the mail
archives for this list.  Understanding the system allows people to use it
effectively.
