He's probably talking about Google Groups and its "integration" with
Usenet. (I'm seeing this as the comp.lang.python newsgroup, via a real
news reader and a real Usenet provider. I am vaguely aware that it's
also a mailing list.)
Google Groups has a long history of creating broken Usenet postings in
new and exciting ways. It's at least as bad as MS Outlook Express and
AOL were in Usenet's past.
Your own posting (or mail) is almost flawless: correct quoting, and a
properly formatted response. But you seem to be using gmail and the
mailing list interface; that's not the technology he's complaining
