I'm not using IRC so I don't know how does it stack against ML and the
forums in this regard.

One can subscribe to just a couple forum threads or sections to keep
the noise down. Such granularity is not available on the ML as there
are just a few Arch ML lists although you can ignore / mute on a
per-thread basis too.
