As Matsoukas pointed out, the stuff is flagged so there is no need for
you to weed.

I had not noticed that the number of posts about TeX on OS X had
decreased and there is no reason why it should since there is no way
that anything could crowd out anything else.

Moroever, at times, there is nothing in the arcane discussions that
interests me and there is probably nothing in the idiotic question I ask

Yes it is. For as long as I have been on this list, there has been a
considerable mix of topics and the list has been remarkably stable and
diversity is what makes it stable and trying to do a bit of "cleansing"
would be just as counter-productive as in the ethnic case. And, as I
pointed out above, diverstiy is also what makes this list useful and
interesting and why
