I read it as a newsgroup too, and if I find a post that has the UNSUBSCRIBE
message at the bottom, I know it has come through the email list.  I then
try to remember to send it to debian-user@lists.debian.org so that it will
go through the list and on to the newsgroup so that the person who posted it
will see it there.  I'm not sure if all the messages go from the list to the
newsgroup or if any of the newsgroup messages go to the list.  That's why I
send my reply to the list if that is where they originated.  That is what I
am doing with this one.

I am not a member of the list, but this still seems to work.
