I am not sure if anyone was aware of this.

If you are seriously making use of this mailist, you may try to use the 
Gmane services instead. You can navigate back and forth through the 
discussion threads very easily and it is more efficient as following the 
development of ideas. Most email agents will also let you tag a thread 
so that you can spot them qucker.

The people who read the mailist on the other hand will often delete past 
threads or emails and lose the development of the thread. Some arguments 
make no sense if you delete a critical argument and a thread often time 
will develop sub-threads.
