I have a single phone line, a 28800 dialup connection, and a 100hr/month
limit. I subscribe to 14 Debian mailing lists including devel and user. I
can't read it all, but I have no problems downloading it.
I run a news server and download the dozen or so newsgroups I read via suck
and read news off line. If the Debian lists were converted to newsgroups,
I would have to download them as well. I doubt that I could get the Debian
news from news.debian.org as fast as I can get my mail from my ISP.
