I see no harm in creating an organize list. People who want access to both
can easily just add a subscription.
However, I think we should split analysis out of the discuss list rather
than organize. I think most people who'd rather not get analysis messages
would still want to get the media monitoring messages (assuming that means
news posting). By "media monitoring" I do not mean to include "media
analysis" (I'm not sure what that means - does it mean arguing that the
Heritage Minister is parrotting the major labels?).

> Announce Announcement list for Digital Copyright Canada

> Discuss General Copyright Discussions
> - High volume (sometimes), and includes organizing, media monitoring,

> Montreal Organizing people in Montreal
> - Pretty much entirely organizing.
> - Note that any other city may request an organizing list if they
