As one who has used maillists and newsgroups, let me add something that
most of know. Some newbees may not.

I find maillist responses are very quick.

Newsgroup message propogation takes time and sometimes I have seen
messages getting lost.

I personally prefer the former due to the quick response.

There is one advantange to the maillist we have here. Unless one is
subscribed, one cannot post. This prevents the numerous spam (broadcast)
messages cluttering the bandwidth and our time.
