This measure was once considered. A practical problem is that some users
are receiving messages through a secondary reflector. For example, most of
Japanese experts are receiving messages through TTC reflector that is
subscribed to the Intel reflector. This is in expectation of Intel's
reduced administrative load. Even active members cannot post when they are
subscribed to the secondary reflector.

If it is really necessary, then we can request all experts to subscribe
directly to the Intel reflector. However, it is appreciated if there is
another means.
