How to Live with Mailing Lists?
December 31, 2006 11:23 AM Subscribe
The problem: I'm subscribed to 20-30 high volume mailing lists (e.g., Ubuntu, Python) and the gmail account I'm using is now 80% full! I subscribed to them to ask a question once in a while, but I really have no interest in following every post to the lists. My question is how do others handle this situation? Is there a solution to mailing lists that I'm missing?

And it makes me wonder, isn't this whole process a lot to ask of newbies, for example if I have a question about MythTV am I really supposed to subscribe to their mailining list and get my inbox flooded just to ask one question?
Finally, assuming there's no obvious solution I'm missing, would some sort of web application to make this process easy be a good product for me to build and maybe sell? I'm looking for software projects at the moment so I'm trying to keep an eye out for problems needing solutions.
