I wonder if they should be invited to only post a single message with the titles and links to the alerts so that people can follow it up.

They should also include a link to their own list that they send the full alerts to.

That way there could be some headline alerting to people that there is something in that topic available but avoids sending each alert to the list every time.

Depends on compliance with the charter for the list but I think it might be nice list etiquette.
