You can subscribe to threads and subforums and receive updates to your
e-mail. There are rss feeds too.
Mike probably wanted to say you don't have to pay attention to e.g.
the 'Newbie corner' threads if you don't want to, where there are
relatively few Arch mailing lists.

As others have said:
- arch-general was enough when Arch was smaller and more niche, it's
one of the Major Distributions now :-) Maybe we need more MLs, maybe
we need more bans.
- There should be a way to 'mute' the thread via some option / filter
in your e-mail app to keep what you consider noise down.
