Please split this list!

I agree that a single list is more conducive to synergies.
Unfortunately, the traffic has grown a lot, and it is virtualy impossible to filter on the client side (except by threading), because you cannot make up any resilient criteria. You can't build a filter without consistently classifying the messages, can you?
So yes, the ideal solution would be that everybody tags their messages with relevant keywords in the subject line.
Anyone has a suggestion for a list of good keywords, something we can start from (non-authoritative)? perhaps even a simple semantics?

 Ask people to write the subject lines more clearly, not "FR Problem" "cannot make a call" "where's the installer thingy" etc.

If they don't comply, harangue them so they fall in line or leave.
