Actually, I think the truth is even simpler than this.  Google Groups is
a usenet archive and posting service.  Debian-user is also a usenet
group, lists.debian.user, and all the posts here I think are
automatically crossposted to that newsgroup, and vice-versa.  I have
used that method to browse through a time or two, though I prefer the
mailing list way of doing things a bit.  But, because this is a
newsgroup and a list it has automatically been archived at google
groups.  Or, at least I would think that is what is going on.
