I would be indifferent because I could filter them.¹

But I think it could be an incentive for people just seeking for advice
(and then potentially getting caught by the interesting discussions) to
not subscribe, or to unsubscribe quickly...

Also, it would make the archives look a bit more like garbage, and
hence less valuable as documentation source.

¹ By the way, I guess creating a filter which catches all - and only -
debian-mentors emails is not trivial at all with email clients which do
not allow filtering on specific headers, such as "X-mailing-list", and
I guess that's for instance the case for gmail.
