Really? I do not remember this ever being part of the signup procedure.

See it from a different angle: If the "uninteresting" mail is becoming too 
much, people will act and install a filter.
Then they'll never see any of the "uninteresting" mail again.

If the mail is below the "gahhhhh"-threshold, people will still read it, 
maybe delete it manually but notice it and might be spurred into action 
when they see an interesting mail...

So in the interest of motivating people, they should not feel annoyed 
enough by a mailinglist to block it outright...
