I know what you mean. Just this week I turned off a couple of other
general Linux lists I was subscribed to simply because I was dealing with
too much mail.

Other than my worry that debian-novice would turn into a wasteland which
experienced users avoided, that seems reasonable.
But you might give some thought to killing or renaming debian-user. What
if you create the other two lists and no one uses them and everyone just
stays on debian-user?
Perhaps a more topic oriented approach (he says mindlessly throwing out
ideas) might be better, e.g. debian-mail, debian-news, debian-networking,
debian-install, debian-x, and debian-novice?
