I also end up deleting the majority of the messages without reading
them. This is also true of the WHATWG Spec list, which is just as
active. The truth is that more than half the stuff that gets proposed is
plain BS, more than half of what's left doesn't interest me, and the
rest is so over-discussed that it's better just to read what Hixie says.
