I remember, about fifteen years ago or so, being unhappy with the way 
majordomo insisted on sending you a copy of every post you made to the 
list.  Being that most of the world was still on dial up, I regarded 
that as an egregious waste of bandwidth.  (Even though I'm on ADSL now, 
I still do.)  I spend a little time researching listserv, and found that 
unless you were willing to accept some tight restrictions on such things 
as number of members, it was outrageously expensive.  Of course, it's 
probably the most flexible, configurable mailing list software there is, 
but, to reverse an old expression, you pay for what you get.
