  • There are mailnews gateways out there, that do the archiving and NNTP interface. Note that you may still need to subscribe to the ML.

    One good one is gmane.org [gmane.org]. It does spam filtering and even has web interfaces for reading and searching.
  • I hate mailing lists too. Along with the things that you mentioned,
    • late-comers have to wait for new messages to show up, unless they use one of those goofy mail archive things (haven't seen one that doesn't suck)
    • everyone gets to download all of the messages, if they want them or not
    • you need access to your mail to see what you have (or use one of those goofy interfaces).

    As mary.poppins pointed out, you can usually work it out to have it both ways, because there are people who hate newsgroups too :)
