Because a mailing list is more convenient?  Because folks can choose
to archive the list in whatever way makes sense to them?  Because most
newsgroups aren't worth the time spent to filter through low S/N

Here's a suggestion:  Why not post subscription instructions to *this*
m/l on the newsgroup?  Best of both worlds...
