If you don't subscribe to announce@, but do subscribe to talk@ you could very well end up hearing people talk about all the cool stuff that happened at an event that has already passed.  And you missed it because you didn't subscribe to announce at .  And then you're sad, and you're thinking "Why didn't I listen to George and subscribe to announce@?".
