I prefer to 'pull' rather than receive the 'push'.

The newsreader idea is better because threading works better, and
because the interface is simpler. I don't know, just preference
I guess.

I am active on several mailing lists also; they only have list
servers (not news Usenet server). The Usenet news reader concept
must be fading away, and many isp(s) are not providing the nntp
post service these days (Charter stopped it in late 2011).

There are still several free post servers out there that do not
require registration (some are free but do require registration).

What are most active pythoniacs doing with this these days?

(beats me)
