I agree, I am behind a firewall and I cannot access newsgroups.
I can give an example.
Everybody knows that BEAs support is very very worse (if you have
no super special gold support and we don't). We know, that BEA has 
a very good newsgroup for support, but we can not read that.
We had a problem but we could not solve it, because the phone
and email support could not help us (or is still waiting..;).
So we decided NOT to use BEAs products.

This mailing list is very good. There are archives you can search.
And the few newbies who are asking question that are already answered
several times. I don't worry. Perhaps they don't know yet where
the archives are.

If you want to read threads.
You can sort the messages by thread.
I think that's what you want.
