I am actually reading through Usenet... the newsserver link is fast, but
the arrival order of posts is not guaranteed, so I don't read messages
in the same order as people using the mail list.  Often I post a reply
to a single message, only to find in the next synchronisation that
others did reply even earlier than me saying more or less the same
things.  Other times I don't bother, saying "somebody else will reply to
this trivial question", and next day I find out that everybody else
thought the same as I did.  That's Usenet (sigh).
