Having enough traffic to split a mailing list would be a nice problem
to have these days.

The best way to assist the extremely rare lost person who somehow
stumbles onto the main list is to cheerfully point them in the
direction of useful resources or help them off list rather than throw
list policy at them. Those enquiries are not currently a problem and I
can't see them growing to become a problem. 

If there is some sort of activity going on that it is anticipated will
generate lots of activity like training then they probably do need
their own separate forum but I don't know if mailing lists can compete
with the alternatives.

If anyone has the access and time to add more mailing lists they might
want to reap some of the old inactive ones while they are there. I
would aim to kill 2 for every new one added.
