I have the same problem, but I don't want to unsubscribe either.
And viewing it through the newsreader is not an option where I
work because it's not on the list of "accepted" newsgroups.

A UNIX support person gave me a solution. (I am receiving
items from this list through ELM under UNIX on an HP workstation.)
He is setting up a filter under ELM that will catch all my
techwr-l mail and route it to it's own folder. That way, I
can read it as I have time, and I don't have to search through
so much in my regular mail folder to find my work-related items.

Hope this is of use to you.
