However... subscribership != readership.  There are always many 
subscribers who don't actively read every post, or every day.  (I'm just 
now catching up on 10 days of unread posts - it would be easy to declare 
email bankruptcy and just mark it all read...)  All you have to do is 
post an important announcement (such as "the mailing list is moving to a 
new server") and then notice how few read it to prove the truth of this 
fact.  :-)  Also, note how few read the list's welcome message, read the 
FAQ, etc.
