Just an observation. I've been a member of this mailing list since (literally) five days ago and I am receiving a busload of emails.
I'm a member of Stackoverflow and I visit the Q&A site daily... and I hardly ever receive emails.
I suspect Discourse would be a good match for these discussions (although I have no experience whatsoever with it).
TL;DR; I would appreciate receiving less mail.
I don’t think its unreasonable to point out that it’s a *mailing list*. A firehose of email is generally a sign of good health of a mailing list. Even so, there are mitigations to the firehose effect, including, but not limited to digests and setting up your client to move mailing list posts directly to a folder (including the trash for threads you don’t want to follow). I don't understand how one can sign up for a mass email discussion forum, and be surprised that it increased the amount of email they receive. It's kind of the point of the medium.
