What you seem to be missing is that there are may types of lists. For job
related lists, the subscribers may be receiving the list mail at their
employer provided account, may be prohibited by company policy from using a
modem connection and forced to read e-mail on a system that does not support
HTML mail. Other lists may be targeted towards individuals who have very
limited resources, e.g. my aids list for indiviuals who are HIV+. These folks
need to use resources like Juno to subscribe to the lists.
