The way it would work is, if someone only has a quick questions about
Writer, they ask there. People on the Writer list only see
questions/answers about Writer, and people on the discuss/users lists
see questions about all of them.

When someone subscribes, they could then simply check boxes next to the
lists/topics they are interested in, and wouldn't need to know they are
actually subscribing to separate lists.

I do know that the users/discuss lists volume is way too heavy for an
'average user' to get any benefit from. For example, since checking my
email last on Friday evening, there have been 150+ new messages to this
list... this would simply terrify anyone who subbed for a simple answer
