If the list requires subscription, then gmane in turn
subscribe with nomail. Either you do it, or they do it in your stead.
I'm not sure about that.
I sent my post via Gmane, replied to its auth message and got
message that my post is denied and I should subscribe to the list.
With some other mailing lists software like Mailman, my post would
probably go to /dev/null.
If the list does not require subscription, then gmane
you, either, to subscribe.
But one still has to reply to their auth message which, iirc, uses TMDA
In both cases, gmane sends mails to the list with your
address, not one of them. You post an nntp post to gmane, and they in
turn generate a normal email that is sent to the mail list, with your
mail address (in your stead). Thus you can receive direct email posts
from people here, off-list, copies of the same post that you see on
nntp, and of course, spam. Basically the same as in an nntp group that
forces you to subscribe with real mail addresses.
Yes, and that's convenient since if the mailing list allows posting via
gmane, one does not need to do anything else besides one-time reply to
their message and it's the reason why it's cumbersome to require people
using Gmane to subsctibe to nomail list.
When your intelligence has passed out of the dense forest
of delusion, you shall become indifferent to all that has
been heard and all that is to be heard.
