IMO this is easily solved by tagging.  If emails are properly tagged 
(which they typically are), most email clients will properly sort on 
rules and you can just auto-delete if you're 100% not interested in a 
particular topic.

I really and truly believe that it has become a blocker for our 
community.  Conversations sent to multiple lists inherently splinter and 
we end up with different groups coming up with different solutions for a 
single problem.  Literally the opposite desired result of sending things 
to multiple lists.  I believe bringing these groups together, with tags, 
will solve a lot of immediate problems. It will also have an added bonus 
of allowing people "catching up" on the community to look to a single 
place for a thread i/o 1-5 separate lists.  It's better in both the 
short and long term.
