Is there any advantage at ALL to being gatewayed with e-groups besides
the automatic tossing of messages in a persistent spam-harvesting bin,
I mean besides archiving in web-readable form?

Having a list at e-groups is just plain lame, and I can't understand how
it's gotten so legitimized. It basically says "I have either no clue how
to maintain something as basic as a mailing list, or no net access that
will let me run one, or both." For a bunch of folks as clued in as FoRKers,
it's just ridiculous to put up with lame-subs and spam harvesting and
all the other facets of having an e-groups mirror! C'mon already!
