that's why I don't get the mails delivered to the mailbox or get numerous
non deliverable mails from the mail server.

nevertheless you will not be able to resent mails soon and perhaps the news
group community should react respectively in time and not just state "the
problem with DMARC".
You know what happens in nature with animals that do not evolve. I am sure
there is a way to handle this with DMARC as well.

Well, the list management community HAS been trying to engage with DMARC - the thing is the DMARC folks are not really all that responsive - "not their problem" and it's a standard that's being imposed by fiat, not in the Internet way.

There are work-arounds, sort of - the basic one being to set a list manager to have all emails show as coming from the list, not the original author.  Makes "reply-to-author" a pain.
