Agreed with Normar and Graeme!

The mailing list is a big input of information. even if basic questions or people getting out of topic are bothering. We can't loose the benefit of the mailing list for bad habits or unfollowing the mailing list recommendations.

The lists are for discussion not questions.  The nature of discussion is inclusive, not exclusive so I cannot agree with the proposal and naturally cannot reply as you request as a result. Maybe the real issue are not the replies it is the use of the list. 

See which clarifies the purpose of lists and Q&A .  The community book if it still exists has a fuller description.  Maybe a standard reply of something like

This mailing list is for discussion and exchange of ideas not questions.  Please see and the Odoo Q&A forum

This will end your issues Ray when a question is asked.  Also proper mail filtering and conversation grouping will probably help. 

There are other protocols that aren't followed which I find annoying.
  • Signatures with images in them and great big chunks of unneeded boiler plate.
  • Not bothering to trim or quote your replies.
