    SubjectMail v. news
    I see at least two problems with the news suggestion, but I think
    it's better to leave it in the air as a suggestion, rather than to
    debate it in the list.

    I would like to be able to see a way to kill off the duplicate
    direct mails. One approach, I guess, would be subject filtering.
    All mail from linux-kernel would go through a filter which would
    maintain a hash database of subjects. All mail would be compared
    with the database. If it had a matching subject and was not from
    linux-kernel it would be junked. The mailer would return an error
    message to the sender.

    Ultimately, though, one has to face the fact that important people
    receive more mail than they can personally cope with. The
    phenomenon is not new, and the best solution, still, is to get a
    secretary. Or several.
