Same here. I do read some web-based forums regularly (using various
backend software) and just dealing with the interface to find unread
messages can be a time sink. For most things I much prefer a mailing
list and having new messages threaded into my inbox.
Being able to reply via email is also usually preferable to using a
web forum. One of the forums I read does send me all new content via
email, but it can't take replies that way. There have been plenty of
times where I had a response but decided not to bother because it
meant I'd have to deal with its lousy web interface to send it.

It's not an issue of filtering. I agree that if I wanted to split out
the messages to some other folder there's already enough header data
to do that. The problem comes when you want all new mail in one

Granted in this case "Light User Data" is a clue that it's Lua, but
you get the idea.
