Active/noisy mailing lists mean many mails, which flood your inbox and
overshadow actual important mail.
Probably not an issue for TB mailing lists. :-P

news.mozilla.org needs no login, tb-planning needs registration
- -> yes, it does apply - I need to remember the mailman credentials.

It's out-of-process (web!) and buggy (postings not found although you
can read them if you know the URL, postings missing completely, etc.).
