You can achieve that by creating/using your own local e-mail filters
(procmail, sieve, embedded MUA filtering...), and then delete/send to
trash messages that match your rules *but* you'll lose many posts (this
one, for instance) ;-(
What I do in such case is using the NNTP interface (Gmane¹) for both,
reading and posting, which alleviates me from storing a heap of e-mails
and also managing tons of filters ;-)
P.S. Most of Debian mailing lists do not require a subscription.
