Yes, I often do that too; i.e. I'm subscribed to python-list at
and get all messages from comp.lang.python mirrored to the ML a bit later.
I prefer the mailing-list over comp.lang.python since my NNTP server
( is rather slow and my ISP has deprecated NNTP 
long time ago. 

I saw you uses Thunderbird on Windows. I'm not sure how it by default handles
a reply-to when there is no "Reply-to" field in the header. To the address in 
"From" / "Sender" or what? 

I wish the NNTP-mailing list gateway could add a "Reply-to: <python-list at>".
Since I'm getting the messages via the ML, I think it would be logical that the replies 
should by default go to the ML too.
