5) How much traffic does the list see?
Depends on subject. From +100 posts a day to one every two days.
It depends on how many posts you and the others make.
I'd also like to mention that forwarding messages is
frowned upon, as I prefer personal knowledge than something
cut and pasted from the www. I'd recommend posting a brief
summary/tutorial and than adding a link to the webpage.
Prove you have intelligence.

 In case it wasn't apparent, Yashy's list in particular is probably
 MORE applicable to unix admins than wannabe hackers.

 I, for one, certainly thought Yashy's list was a bunch of wannabe hackers
 until I joined and lurked for a bit.
