I've been reading debian-user as a newsgroup, linux.debian.user.
My netnews provider (newsguy.com) carries it, and I see it's
in google-groups now.  I don't know how anyone could deal with
it as an email stream.  (I subscribed by email to get posting
privileges, and discard the incoming stream with a procmail
recipe.  Seems a waste, but the gated-at.bofh.it gateway
seems to be read-only.)

If you just want to follow a thread now and then, use
google groups.
