hating on gmail

So I've been working off and on trying to get my wireless working on sid, and there were some helpful replies the first time I  posted to debian-user that steered me towards possible solutions.   Last night I wanted to post my progress and a request for more help, and since I'd used this gmail account to post the initial message, I thought I'd try to use groups.google.com to actually attach my response to the bottom of the thread (rather than starting a new one).  Probably I shouldn't be surprised by the result:

I can understand (in principle) why I'm getting this message (though the fact that the debian-user list which this newsgroup is gatewayed to is completely unmoderated means it doesn't really make a lot of sense in practice).  But what really annoys me is that I now appear to have lost the content that I composed last night (which I suppose is my fault for not pasting it somewhere to save it "just in case" before sending).  There's no copy in my gmail "sent mail" folder, (presumably because I posted through the groups.google.com web interface) and the "first few lines" (that I snipped above) includes mostly the full headers and only the first couple lines (and none of the technical detail that I'd assembled).  Upon receipt of the message, I did follow the instructions (and try to subscribe to the gateway deal), but I'm thinking that the chances of my previously sent message being resurrected after I successfully subscribe are probably slim to none.   And yeah, I know that if I'd expended the effort this morning to recompile my technical information, it probably would have taken less time than composing this message, but I still wanted to rant somewhere first.   Thanks for listening :-]
