This is not our fault, it is yours. There's something wrong with your
filter. If you are using a decent MUA, you can filter on headers.
Happily, the Plug list (like all well behaved lists) include a list-id
header. This is what you should be filtering on. I sincerely doubt
you're using procmail, but if you are, here's the outline of a rule:

* ^List-Id:.*plug\.plug\.org

P.S. It is rude to hijack threads like you did with your message. At the
very least, modify the subject as I've demonstrated.
