Also, firstname.lastname@example.org is the canonical place to get
messages sent here; linux.debian.user isn't run from the Debian servers
and so might not always work (it's not necessarily carried by all news
I didn't think messages posted to linux.debian.user showed up here,
although somebody might have been brave enough to set up a bidirectional
gateway (mail->news gateways are easy, mail->news->mail gateways have
considerable danger of mail loops if you get something small wrong).
