But you did try to post to a mailing list even though you tried to do
it through a nntp gateway. The linux.debian.* groups are just
'mirrors' of the mailing lists available on lists.debian.org gatewayed
trough a server that happens to be located in italy.

If you want tomake uses of the services provided by linux.* (which is
mostly nntp access to a lot of linux related mailling lists) you'll
have to subscribe to the service as the mail you got has told you.

... but I guess this is offtopic for debian-devel.
