There is NO REASON for sending a test post. None. Ever. If you have something to post, post it. If you don't have something to post, there's no need to send a test post.

And, ahem, you can test a list just as well by sending something ON TOPIC as you can by sending a test message. So even if you only want to test a list, you can do it in a way that nobody even notices -- with just a bit of thought...
