that's what i've been doing for some years, and i'm well tired of it - 
bear in mind that i'm interested in far fewer of the messages than you 
are.  Sometimes i forget to look in the folder for a few days and miss 
things i wished i'd seen earlier. Also, given the volume of stuff 
discussed by CSS folks, it's a pain to clear out junk that i don't need 
to see, so it tends to build up, slow down my mail retrieval, lengthen 
time machine updates etc.

If i get one email per new issue i can receive it in my inbox, so i'll 
see it right away. If i decide it's interesting i'll subscribe to the 
issue, if not i delete it straight away and don't have to worry about a 
deluge of follow-on mail that needs to be ignored and deleted at some 
point.  If i decide to keep copies of the mail i'm interested in, i 
don't have to search for it in a huge pile of other stuff. And so on.
