I wouldn't want that posted as a message in my groups, as a group owner I'd find that intrusive.

I can't and won't argue with anyone's personal preferences, they are what they are.

That being said, there are users from all over the world who use, and a number of them could very well be quite active during the scheduled maintenance time.  While the e-mail messages will be queued up, it could be very confusing to have stuff seemingly MIA for several hours without warning.  Intrusive is precisely what I'd be looking for as a user can read, or delete, an e-mail message at will or skip any entry on the web interface.  When it comes to scheduled outages I prefer overkill in notification to individual users rather than subtlety.

You can safely assume you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.
