It's not, email@example.com is the list, all the newsgroups
mirroring the list are just that: Mirrors. They ARE NOT the list, and

lists.debian.org are supported by Debian.

Mail has threads, too. See the References header. Most mail readers

How should we know why you can't use the list? You insist on using
someone's mail2news gateway. As you've been told before, if you have
a question about the gateway, go pester them.
