My opinion is that the Python list should dump the Usenet tie-in and
just go straight e-mail.  Python is the only list I'm on that has a
usenet gateway.

I used to love usenet back in the day, but in the present internet
climate makes it unworkable, though I concede that e-mail is reaching
the end of its usefulness as well.

I wouldn't oppose a dual e-mail list and web-based forum system,
provided the forum system supported threaded conversations in a clean
and useful way (maybe like google wave used to).
