I can't speak for others, but personally, I don't think the Debian 
lists are unfriendly. In my case, I just find that it requires a lot 
of effort on my part to actually follow -devel. In fact, it's already 
hard for me to follow just -boot (or most parts of it), -vote and 
-private (when there are no stupid flamewars in that). And right now, 
time is just not enough for me...
I just need something that has a high signal/noise ratio...
