Evidently. My mailbox hasn't been this full in months.

Most people want to learn, I think. If a thread is to technical for someone
they don't have to read it after all. Most mail clients will let you sort
all mailing list traffic in one folder and if one per list isn't enough it
will let you define keywords and sort by those.

In my experience splitting lists just leads to crossposting or starvation of
all but one list. A seperate slim-hardware list for discussion of mods,
DACs, cables, music server hardware ... might work, though.
