Hmm... tell whomever set up the damn news gateway to set it up so that
replies to the newsgroups are mailed to the mailinglist OR delivered to
/dev/null, and it will work in a saner way.

Of course, should he screw up and cause a mail loop, the entire news gateway
will most probably be forcibly removed from the Debian MLs, and blacklisted.
There is very, very little tolerance for misconfigured news gateway AFAIK
(due to previous episodes of breakage).
