I would like to second (third?) this. Nntp is more efficient and
practical for the sorts of group discussions we have. Read-only
gateways are a hassle to deal with, and mailing lists are even more of
a hassle, IMO. Plus, it would provide automatic archiving. And spam
could be canceled, rather than mailed to everyone and archived for all
I'd subscribe to a whole lot more debian lists if they were available
through a writable nntp server. I might even hang out on -user and
help the newbies once in a while if it didn't involve tripling my
already high mail burden.
