Q1 I ignore threads that aren’t of interest (outlook even has a handy “ignore thread” button - though lists like this tend to break it)
Q2 If they get too annoying and don’t have useful content, then I make a rule to send that person’s mail to the trashcan. I include their name in the body to catch replies as well.
Q3 If there were too many of those folks, then I’d have more rules.

Q3: reducing value of the list for me

I was having an offline discussion with someone regarding certain topics that may show up on this list on occasion, and the question came up of what evidence we might have of sentiment on the list. So, I thought I’d conduct a simple straw poll — respond if you feel inclined.
The questions are framed around this hypothetical scenario: Suppose I were to post a message to the list describing some experiment I did, creating a Web page containing (say) some Latin characters — not obscure, just-added-in-Unicode-8 characters, but ones that have been in the standard for some time; that my process for creating the file was to use (say) Notepad and entering HTML numeric character references; and that my findings were that it worked.
Q1: Would you find that to be an interesting post that adds makes your participation in the list more useful, or would you find it a noisy distraction that reduces the value you get from participating in the list?
Q2: If I were to send messages along that line on a regular basis, would that add value to your participation in the list, or reduce it?
Q3: If 50 people (still a small portion of the list membership) were to send messages along that line on a regular basis, would that add value to your participation in the list, or reduce it?
