I also have this problem. I posted a while ago that all I ever receive
is yesod posts:

I actually didn't unsubscribe, I just set a GMail filter. Recently I
unset that to open some discussions. I noticed that I was actually
missing out on general web-dev developments.

But if I search "web-devel" in GMail, 14 out of the 20 results are
yesod-specific. I created a test filter to remove "web-devel + yesod",
but then I miss out on general posts where people merely mention
yesod. 577 of 1224 *subjects* in the archive contain yesod.

I'm pretty sure that would make the problem worse. Then we would have
yesod, happstack and snap "how do I do X?" questions to filter out.
But anyway it seems more attractive these days for me to properly
unsubscribe and get interesting web developments via Planet Haskell
and Reddit or something. If you chaps want to get my attention
specifically please drop me a mail or something.
