Nevertheless, turning it off takes away from the people that prefer the
digest form, and doesn't provide any benefit to offset that loss. The
effort to turn it off may be tiny, but it still requires an active decision
to do so, which I view as an active decision to needlessly annoy the
people who prefer digests.

Of course, that logic wouldn't apply to a brand new list when it's
first being created, nor to a list that had zero digest subscribers.
