    I'd agree that this has become a nuisance, and it is becoming
    increasingly tempting to unsubscribe from lsm.  It may just be a
    perception, but it seems like I get far more spam from lsm than lkml or
    other public lists to which I subscribe.  Perhaps that is just because
    there is sufficient legitimate volume on those lists to make the
    signal-to-noise ratio acceptable.
    One might argue that aside from major new directions for LSM, any
    LSM-related discussions should just occur directly on lkml anyway.
