I find lists where there's fairly open discussion of topics more
useful than those that deal with very narrow topics.  It's
amazing how many times I learn something useful that I never
would have seen on a restricted list (e.g. I learned about the
Mac RSS reader NetNewsWire on a local Linux group list).

If a topic is uninteresting, ctrl-d with mutt on the thread nukes
it quickly.

Anyone who thinks Microsoft never does anything truly innovative isn't
paying attention to the part of the company that pushes the state of
its art: Microsoft's legal department.
