Martin/Herbert. Please recognize that the spam situation is turning useful
people away. As for myself, I tend to read this mailbox about once a
fortnight now, purely because of the crap I have to step over.

Yes, I skim LKML. But with 100x the message, the S/N ratio is still high
enough to parse. I also read it in a different way---reading what I need
to. Whereas with vserver-list, I would /expect/ myself to read/parse/reply
to every email.

So, to sum up:

  (1) I'm not going to unsubscribe (that would kill the archives...)
  (2) Don't expect people to carry on interacting with the mailing list

[Just looking at the messages-per-day, (2) has been the case for quite a
while now. I would love to see that trend reversed ...soon]

Thank you for listening,
