It's been mentioned many times before, particularly on the tagging list,

own voice and think everyone else does too, despite any evidence to the 

What I do is to manually add a filter to anyone who posts excessively to 
the list such as tagging (say, on average more than 4 times a day there) 
and file those messages into another folder for reading later or never.

It's not perfect (it doesn't stop me having to read _replies_ to the 
same arguments being repeated over and over) but it does make it easier 
to find genuine new points of discussion without having to wade through 
the same old same old (e.g. "landuse vs landcover" on the tagging list).
