The usual answer to this kind of problem is splitting up the forums.
E.g. a haskell-learners list for those who should be saying "I'm 
learning Haskell", a haskell-tricks one for the more esoteric 
(high-level, whatyanameit) stuff. Possibly haskell-libraries for library 
announcements and questions of the form "where do I find the library for 
doing foobar".

Just my 2c. There may be better courses of action (or non-action).
