Yeah, the WW forum was quite efficient for filtering out most of the noise...

I'm not familiar with the mailing list software that is used, but is
it possible to send an auto response to the first post a user has to
the mailing list (not a signup confirmation or anything like that, but
as a response to their first post, with RE: <your topic> in the
subject and everything...)? A regular mail would certainly be a good
idea, but you still won't catch those who just sign up to get that one
problem solved (URGENT PLZ).
