I think it would be good to just have one list. Following multiple lists is
a drag, and crossposts are a drag, and NOT following both lists you might
miss something important. I don't think making the list members-only for
posting would cut down on noise except for the tiny bit of spam we get, but
it's ok with me. The idea of looking for more benefits to membership is a
good one.
