I don't consider that "bad news".  That's just "how it is".  As far as I 
can see, it's all good news :)

Personally, I prefer having the email list with the individual messages 
(rather than the digest) because I check email frequently and can catch 
things as they come in.  If the list moved to Usenet or a web forum, I 
doubt I would check the list as frequently, if ever.
