No, Gmail's behavior works well (similar to what you described) as long as
you know how to set up the filter. To balance noise and visibility, I set
up Noisebridge messages to come into my inbox as already read. That way I
see them, but I don't have an extra 50 unread messages a day (which would
annoy me). I could have them skip my inbox and just go to a label, but I
never read those. Anyway its still a label I can easily click on if I want
to. But anyway, I added an exception if I am listed directly as one of the
recipients, and in that case it shows up into my inbox unread. Pretty slick
actually, but unfortunately, after a few messages someone tends to clear me
out (maybe someone forgot to hit reply all, and whoever realized it just
punched in the mailing list address. This may happen pretty often, it my
theory is correct), so it only really works the once, reliably, and I
wouldn't really miss it if Noisebridge went to some other system.

Also I should point out that i've only been to the space a handful of
times, so if paying participating members feel otherwise, don't worry about
me. I did help with the laser though. :)
