Hi,

This may be controversial, but anyways, here goes.

I'm not a Liftweb user, and I don't plan to become one soon. So seeing all
the liftweb posts in the scala mailing lists on Nabble
(http://www.nabble.com/Scala-Programming-Language-f20934.html) is giving me
no particular value in addition to the noise.

Could the powers that be please remove liftweb from the Scala Programming
Language section on Nabble? It already has a home in the Software/Web
Development Framework section
(http://www.nabble.com/Web-Development-Framework-f16257.html)

TIA,

:-lj

Re: Re moving liftweb from Scala@Nabble
I added Lift to the Scala area of Nabble based on a request that people see not only Scala but practical applications of Scala and to demonstrate the unity of the Scala and Lift communities.  This is exactly the same as Rails which is a child of Ruby and Web Frameworks.

Re: Re moving liftweb from Scala@Nabble
I also suspect that the lift group is being far more easily found than general scala mailing lists, as the presence on Google gives it higher visibility...There definitely seem to be a lot more postings to the lift group, even on general topics such as eclipse plugin setup

Which is a perfectly valid reason. But at the moment the liftweb messages
are totally drowning the rest of the traffic. And that I find less than
useful.

Silly question I'm sure, but why do you read the lists via Nabble
rather than using gmail and a few filters to keep the messages out of
your inbox?

Re: Re moving liftweb from Scala@Nabble

Reading lists like this via RSS is considerably less work than doing so via
e-mail. I also would agree that lift traffic is now great enough and
intrusive enough that it deserves to be moved to it's own list.

Re: Re moving liftweb from Scala@Nabble

I created a small greasemonkey script that filters out the liftweb posts. It
solved my needs.
