I've been on this list for several years and I get that feeling too
because I'm into Unix boxes, 8/16bitters and Mac's.  For me the noise
I have to filter is the DEC/Big Iron discussions to get the pearls
that fit my interests.   But, to each their own, if we all liked the
same thing there would be more competition for an ever decreasing pool
of available hardware.
