In our case as a social club the discussion is itself the whole point, so I'm not sure why someone would want to subscribe to announce but not discuss.

Pulling this out of my spam folder...

I see your point. I'm fine with removing the announce list. If we ever
get to the point where we need to deal with excessive volume on the
discuss list, we can solve the problem at that time.

I just love solving problems that don't exist yet! ;)
