Hi Andrew,

This is a mailing list.
By definition it's a place where we have discussions using email as the
medium.

Both Tony's project and the Interledger project have other discussion
mediums (IRC and Gitter) but that shouldn't prevent the community using
whatever medium they choose.

If the emails are a problem for you I'd suggest setting up rules on your
side to deal with them or unsubscribing from the list.

Adrian
