Besides what Randy wrote, several mailing lists are mirrored to
newsgroups.  I subscribe to muc.lists.freebsd.questions, even though I
am subscribed to the list.  (I prefer not to receive all that stuff as
e-mail.)  When answering a post, I have to edit the addresses, but my
answer is then threaded properly.
