Try:
	signal:	Discussion of The W3C Validation Service.  [0]
	noise:		anything else.

Let's have signal, and a lot less noise. Once upon a time this list was
focused on "The W3C Validation Service."  Such would seem a noble goal to
return to, and a lot less hassle for those of us who have that focused
interest.  Please.

'The point? The community is hardly dead. And the usual advice applies:
anyone who wants more signal and less noise should generate more signal,
not just complain about the noise. As I like to say, it's easy to hit the
"Delete" key, but my keyboard has no "Create" key.'
