Posterous groups

James Clay alerted me to the new group blogs on Posterous. It's an interesting idea and I'd like to try it out. The Posterous announcement is clearly aimed at small private groups such as families:

No account sign up required. This means no more waiting for Mom to complete the signup process; instead, just add her email address and she's in your group. Every time you post to the group, she'll receive the full content as an email. She can reply directly to your email and everyone in the group gets her update.
I wonder what the practical numbers limit is on such a group – how many people before the noise becomes overpowering? And how long before the free 1GB fills up (btw, is that 1GB for each of your Posterous blogs or 1GB in total?)
