That's fair enough in principle. I've just re-subscribed and set a filter to
discard the "PASS" emails.

However, if I was still using a modem, I would be very reluctant to subscribe
because of the high volume of traffic on that list - currently around 2000
emails per month, and they are not tiny.

Would you consider posting only a summary of passes? Or providing a list that
sends only the failures? I think you said before that you like to see the
passes, to know that they are actually being tested, but I wonder if that still
applies now that there are so many that it is not feasible to even look
carefully at the Subject lines. Perhaps it would be better to set up an
automatic monitoring agent to check that all of your intended tests are either
passing or sending a failure email? This could infrequently (say weekly) send
a summary of which tests have been run.
