I would be against that. I am totally in favor of advertising and
promoting the new lists (including on the tigris lists themselves),
but we ought to let the users move to the new lists (or not)
organically. If we start encouraging cross-posting or we try to do it
behind the scenes I do not see how that is not going to create
unexpected problems.
