Because we do get some great gems of posts/articles sent to the mailing list -
but links to them in the mailing list archive tend to be too transient; more so
when archives need to be regenerated as the URIs for those archived posts
change from one instance of the archive to the next.
It'd be a shame to get those useful posts go missing in action, wouldn't it?
Nobody should have to go on a click-fest either and articles on the site tend
to be less 'deeply situated' than postings in the archives - which means more
navigation for the easily frustrated.
