Filtering topics from mailing list ???

softfoot

Is there a way on the mailing list to block a particular topic ??

Many forums have the ability to stop certain topics being forwarded ..
is this possible with the OpenScad one ??

Regards,
Dasve

Not as a user based setting.
Mailman 2 had a topic type thing, it seems to have gone in Mailman 3.

You always have email client rules, I direct a lot of traffic I don't want to see elsewhere.

Some might say that this is a weakness of mailing lists.

I'd say that it's a strength.  You can set up whatever rules you find useful; you aren't limited to what this particular forum supports.  Of course you have to have a mail client with reasonable capabilities, but most have at least some - probably at least as much as the typical forum.

If I decide that I want to pay special attention to everything that Michael says, I can set up a rule to highlight his messages.  If I'm just not interested in anything about Python, I can set up a rule discarding all messages with "Python" in the subject.

And, because it's all in the client, I have these capabilities identically for all mailing lists I participate in.  I don't have to keep track of how each individual one operates.
