That's what procmail is for.  I'm on a *lot* of lists, and if I wouldn't 
use procmail to sort it, it would be impossible to read it all.  This is 
what a friend of mine tries to do (without procmail), but if he leaves 
for the weekend, he'll have 300-400 messages from several ML's in a 
mess.  Not good.

Maybe we should do what linux-kernel did?  Make a circle-offtopic list.
