Why fracture and duplicate the effort already taken care of by

This is not a "fracture" or "duplication". To post to this group, I had to
reveal my email address and go through a two email process of subscription.
Those things might not be problematic for you, but as a long time user of
the Usenet, I find these requirements onerous, and in the present day spam
ridden Net experience, even inviting trouble, since this is a glorified
mailing list.

It's handy to reveal your genuine email address in order to subscribe to the list, but AFAIK you can use a completley bogus address to write to it.

If you do this, pls ensure you do use a bogus address and not some other poor sod's address. Or askbill@microsoft.com.

No, I don't mean that. Bill has enough problems already. What, with Longhorn slipping and fragmenting and all.
