Excuse me for pointing out the obvious, but this is a list for people who
use mailing list managers. So, if you ask the people on this list whether
they maintain their list manually or not, chances are that you'll find an
overwhelming majority of people who don't. Furthermore, this is by and
large a Majordomo list. You won't find many LISTSERV or ListProc or
SmartList people here. I know that this isn't what the list is *supposed*
to be, but this is what the list *is*, due to its location. To wit, the
ratio of Majordomo to say ListProc questions posted to the list...
Actually I think the ratio of Majordomo to LISTSERV questions is still
infinite ;-) If you're going to make a poll, you'll probably have to take
a large list whose membership can be reasonably considered to span all
sorts of backgrounds and cultures (say a list like TOPTEN which all sorts
of people subscribe to), and ask them if they're subscribed to lists, and
how many, and how they're maintained. TOPTEN isn't a good example though
because the list of subscribers isn't public, but you get the idea.
