To be more accurate: This is deprecated *by members of* this list. As
there is no commanding/controlling entity here, it's up to each
individual to make a decision - for instance, abusive users get
killfiled rather than banned. The use of Google Groups to post is
deprecated in the original sense of the word: strongly disapproved of.

My own opinion on the matter is that if it takes as much effort as you
describe to use GG properly, it's wasting your time on a massive
scale. Surely it's easier to read and post email?
