"""My main reason for setting up Gmane in the first place was my
annoyance with the concept of mailing lists. I've always preferred
newsgroups -- they have a nice interface; they can be archived in a
convenient format; and they can be searched (via DejaNews/Google).
Mailing lists have a lousy interface, and if they have an archive at
all, it's always hidden behind some web-based monstrosity. And they
never allow searching."""
