Not really. I filter every list into dedicated folders. My Zope folder
currently has over 8000 messages in it, and over 6000 of them are

With a newsgroup and a good newsreader, I could mark threads as
'ignored' and not get any followups to them, cutting down on the volume.
There are other tools besides this that just don't work in a
mailing-list environment

I do like the idea of a mailing-list newsgroup gateway, though.
