I am using gmane to lurk there and I am posting directly from NTTP client,
so I can understand the value of not receiving mailing lists via email ;-)
Life is simply different since gmane.org.

Nabble is good, and they are ranking high at google. I think we could add
this list at markmail.org, too.

The advantage of being easily searchable is that SNR tends to get better
once all past problems can be googled out.
