Why don't we move this list to googlegroups?

Hi No thanks, gmane works fine for weeding out the cruft.....

I don't call bouncing emails "working fine"... but you may have a
different definition...

Arguably, that is your fault >:-)

Emails with html are intentionally rejected, as the list server could
accept them if this was wanted. No need to use googlegroups for that.

Many of the people using these lists do not want html email. I know
people that have filters that intentionally send any email with html
to the dustbin without even reading them, and some of these people are
Linux experts, so I would not like to lose them.

And then, the maintainers of these lists do not want html email,
either, so they actively bann them. Trying to convince them is futile.

I happen to agree with that view.

You want googlegorups? Go ahead, you can fork the lists. The result
will be that you get fewer active people on the resulting lists,
dividing the community. We did once with one of the lists I subscribe
to, so I know.

If you want html like features, you can use the opensuse forums, and
these are VERY active. They are very much more active than any mail
list here, so that's the future, not html mail lists.

As for my preferences, I would use nntp instead, not email, nor
forums. If you think nntp old fashioned, it does support html, as
well. Not all clients, though, nor all servers.
