Either that or do what I do. Don't read every damn message on the list! It
drops the signal to noise ratio as well as the amount of content you have
to read. Sure there are filters, but the best filters are the human brain!
Your brain comes automatically equipped with a information priority
labeling system. Just as you automatically hit delete when you see an email
advertizement or when I used to do my mass postings to the list, you can do
the same if you aren't interested in a particular topic. When the subject
delves into deep math, philosophy, or semantics I usually don't read them.
About every month I scroll up the list of headers in my Eudora inbox and
find the middle of the list. I then highlight all headers above the middle
and delete them praying that the list archive hangs onto them for me.
Everyone is capable of doing this.
