I haven't delved deep into this, but the Gmane server does not appear to
accept my connections. It just doesn't respond when I request the list of
groups and I can't just specify any myself until I get a server response.
I have found a decent way of 'co-existing' with mailing list. I think
treating them as newsgroup would have me feel like the sophisticated network
of filter was all in vain. I think also that one of the powers of mailing
lists is the way /others/ read them. Even if threaded, more messages are
visible. Since messages are 'pushed' you are more likely to get help or get
your message across.
Thanks for the help.
