Why would that be cynical?  I've filtered clients I don't have any
experience with or knowledge of.  Others do, as well.  Selective attention
is the *reason* for the group's convention of using "[client name]" in the
subject headers. No problems there; that's what it's for.  Some kill a
subset; others upscore a subset.
