It's my first post here, and I'm having hard time trying to underderstand why linux.debian.* is being run as mailing list in the first place. I have no problems with moderation and revealing my mail address (it's my spam collector anyway). But SMTP is for mail, NNTP is for threaded discussions. I had once subscribed to several lists, and seeing how awfully inefficient it is for such things, I had summarily stopped all my list subscriptions, and I will not subscribe to a single list anymore, no matter what, as a principle. Using mail as a vehicle for threaded discussion, seems to me only good for a tightly knit closed group. I can't understand why a public, usenet-mirrored group should be implemented as a mail list. For added gatewaying complexities? To download all the message bodies that Iwouldn't read?
Personally, I never liked the latency inherent in usenet.
