The OP could have figured all this out by himself by merely looking at
the headers for a sampling of articles.

Heck, with about 50 lines of Python, one could probably produced a
fairly comprehensive statistical report on access methods and clients
used by posters to "this mailing list".  [An NNTP client module is one
of the "batteries", and that module's docs contains most of the code
needed to access the articles.]

Finding out the access methods used by people who don't post is
somewhat more difficult. :)
