if one is subscribed to a high traffic mailing list that is about to
have a long drawn out thread on meta-type discussions *AND* that list
happens to be run by mailman, your mail spool has nothing to fear.
go to the web site for the mailing list (eg
http://email@example.com - fill in your
email address) and click the disable mail delivery to "on". now you can
wait out the storm of e-bureaucracy in safety.
at that point it might be wise to let folks know that if they have any
on-topic posts that you might be able to help them with (eg "how do i
use this kickstart thingie you mentioned?") that you should be emailed
privately (eg kevin at suberic.net).

fork()'ed on 37058400 made a deal: if she'd stop hookin', i'd stop
meatspace place: home shootin' people. maybe we were aiming high."
