I'd have to reluctantly agree.  I've been using Usenet for 25 years,
and I still read this as comp.lang.python, but this is practically the
only Usenet group left that I follow.  There are a number of mailing
lists I follow via gmane's NNTP server, and I can certainly do the
same for this one.

I've been filtering out all postings from GG for years, so it doesn't
really matter to me, but apparently there are a lot of people with
defective mail/news clients for whom that's apparently not possible?
[Otherwise, I don't understand what all the complaining is about.]
