The problem is that there are several hundred issue updates on  
drupal.org and several dozens of new issues every day. Now, if every  
developer would announce his/her newly created issue, how many e- 
mails would you get?

There is a difference in receiving 20 emails a day and receiving 500  
e-mails a day.

Nodbody tells you to not post to the development mailing list if -  
and only if - the issue has to be discussed on the mailing list  
rather than in the issue queue.
