I'm sorry, but I don't understand (truly).
Every day I see dozens of threads that don't interest me and... I ignore
them. I too, "don't have to go through my Inbox manually filtering out
messages that I'm not interested in or delete them as they come up". So I
fail to understand the advantage you are claiming for fora.
(Indeed, I never delete anything that comes in on a reflector. There's no
reason to do so. But I admit that that's not on point, except insofar as it
means that I have a local searchable archive.)
Case in point: the subjects of the last twenty five threads for a
particular reflector are displayed on my screen. Looking at the scribus
reflector, I see at a glance that I have looked at exactly three of the
last 25 threads here.
