And for at least the 11th time, you are wrong.  There are reasons
(not applicable to everyone but applicable to many) for using
Google Groups, among others it is more accessible and easier to 
use for many than a news reader with Gmane.

That you don't like aspects of the posts produced by GG is fine
(I don't either) but it does not justify posting BS claims -- if 
you want people to use Gmane because *you* don't like reading GG
posts then say so but don't claim that doing so is just as easy 
as GG -- it is not.

There are ways of mitigating some of the worst characteristics of
GG posts, see
