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.

Right you are, Alex.

I don’t think its unreasonable to point out that the title of this thread is "Moving to another forum". If you want to contribute Python Ideas you have to subscribe to the mailing list.

Let me just say that I second the idea of moving to another forum.

I already move most mail automatically to the trash folder and read it there before eliminating it. My inbox contains exactly four emails at the moment, FYI.
