Actually that's wrong, but the real numbers only re-inforce your
point. Only ~3.5% of emails that hit murphy actually make in onto a
list. I've put up the breakdowns for the last two days on my
website[1] for people who want to see the breakdowns. I didn't count
in those numbers the ~21,000 that are addressed to an
un-existant user name @lists.debian.org.

If you think the numbers are scary, they're on basically the same
order of magnitude to what bugs.debian.org is dealing with.
