Is that all that annoys you about GitHub's email?  What about the fact
that you get a lot of useless notifications that cannot be selectively
turned off?  What about the fact that most email messages have zero
context, so you have no idea to which part of the discussion they are
responding, unless you keep everything in mind?

Users of GitHub don't write their posts thinking about email
recipients, they evidently assume that everyone is looking at the
discussion via a Web browser.  Therefore, the email notifications are
no more than indications of "something happened", they don't support
intelligent and efficient participation in the discussion without the
need of reading all of it via the browser.
