I haven't been active in KDE development (as in writing or committing or 
reviewing code) for almost 10 years (with a few exceptions during some 
sprints). Before that I have burned myself reading each and every KMail 
bug report and fixing many of them for a few years. I don't think I'm 
behaving disrespectful to anybody by filtering out bug reports.

Anyway, I have now unsubscribed from the kdepim-bugs mailing list. I 
should have done this years ago, but I guess I still hoped that I would 
become more active again someday.
