Maybe not everyone here is interested in receiving the information from the news group?  Not everyone who is on the BFS_NEWS list in on the BFS Discussion Group and vice versa.  The same thing should apply to here.  Now the more vocal here will be all for it I am sure, but it is better group form not to have groups within groups for messaging.  I've been on ones that have done that in the past and it just gets all mangled up to the point that people stop using them.  At least, that's been my experience over the last 20+ years of being online.

You won't get duplicates if you are on this list and not the other
one, you only get them if you sign up for both, if that one is
auto-posting to this one why sign up for both? That list is for the
people that don't want to be bothered with the signal to noise ratio
of THIS list, or the issues with FB.

This isn't rocket surgery...
