No, I mean that IMO the best group communication method would be nntp,
not email, because it does not require subscribing. You can not get full
mail boxes, and you can go back in history and see posts written years
ago, way before you "subscribe".

Only if someone keeps archive. NNTP was not really designed for it -
news servers keep limited amount of recent articles and usually expunge
articles that expire.

So at the end it depends on good will of server maintainer whether you
will find posts written years ago.

Oh, yes, you are right.

You can have your local cache, while it lasts. With leafnode, that cache
can be huge, and never deleted, if you so wish.

Note: leafnode uses one file per post, so you can end with millions of
small files. Which means that it is best to use reiserfs for that
partition ;-)

Anyway,.. lets say then that with nntp you can go back in history,
reading posts prior to your joining date, somewhat :-)
