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.
