- mails sent to email@example.com are gatewayed to l.d.u.
- posts sent to l.d.u are not gatewayed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ISTR the usenet -> ml gateway being discussed on-list recently, maybe
it works now.
As somebody else already mentioned, one solution is to read from l.d.u
and post to email@example.com. Debian mailing-lists don't require you to
subscribe to post.
Alternatively, if you want read/post nntp access to Debian
mailing-lists (as well plenty of other mailing-lists), head towards
Gmane (http://www.gmane.org). Among other things (archives, spam
detection), it offers a bidirectional nntp interface to plenty of
mailing-lists, including Debian lists.
This fortune would be seven words long if it were six words shorter.
