I think you'll find a large contingent on this list that will disagree
with you - the mailing list is meant for kernel development and hence
debugging. Anything that discourages people from reporting bugs, or
making suggestions, is not taken well.

I've tried in the past to stem the tidal wave of junk on this list.
I've learned to cope with it for the most part, and accepted it as
"it comes with the territory". Eventually you will too, or you'll
stop reading the list I suppose.
