Well, Jonathan, since you asked, here are the things I've found cumbersome about freebsd-questions, some/all of which may be due to my own ignorance:
1) I get all email posted to freebsd-questions in my inbox (actually, some end up in "bulk mail" folder). That's a lot of mail to wade through. I'm trying to get a system up and running so I can move on to the next task.
I suppose I could set up some email filtering rules to limit what comes in.
2) To reply to an email, I have to copy/paste "freebsd-questions at freebsd.org" into the "To" field. If I forget to do this, my reply gets send to the sender only.
See? I almost forgot to do it for this reply. :-}
One feature I like about (some) list servers is the ability to send a private message to another member. This comes in handy when one person is helping troubleshoot a problem, and you don't need everybody on the list to get involved.

I normally try not to be rude, but...
what on Earth are you talking about? What is it about a Mailman installation
on a host within the freebsd.org domain that renders it less than proper?
