However this probably won't hold users back from asking on the list first. As Adam said - if we 'encourage' to ask questions on SO first and come back for discussion if needed.

See Polymer project: they have a prominent message on top always saying 'Please ask questions on SO' while having a google group for discussions. Using SO for questions builds a knowledge base of qualified answers- to find answers in mailinglists is harder.

Excellent suggestion. Specifically, where would such a notice go?

At least we can add a sentence when registering to the list. Not sure what can be customized in the mailman regarding response templates.
Just would appreciate if more frequent users might step forward and consider posting questions on SO first so others can profit from that later. 

I think that like Wolfgang, I live in a time zone that misses out on replying in a timely matter. Every time I get a notification, it's been answered already. Some day I'll get an answer in on time.
