I prefer to use the 'nomail' option to the mailing list (so i can post) 
and use gmane's nntp via mozilla thunderbird to read.  The web interface 
also allows for dearching posts.  Keeps my inbox from getting too 
cluttered, but I have easy access to all of the mailing list (even from 
before I signed up to it) in a nice threaded format.
