Since I subscribe to the newsgroup rather than to the mailing list I 
don't see that behavior. It's by far the most convenient way to interact 
with, and makes it easy to do so with Firefox or 
Outlook Express. I've never really understood why Outlook doesn't 
include an NNTP client. I presume Apple Mail (which appears in your 
headers) doesn't act as a newsreader either?
