Very simple: I don't want to be spammed with tons of patches, patch
reviews, and issue comments. Also, I want the history of issue
discussions to be easily accessible from permanent, issue-specific
URLs, rather than search through mailing-list archives to understand
why a change was made.

I appreciate that you refrained from giving a stupid answer, however.
