The efforts are not on behalf of the mail-oriented users, quite the
contrary - I'm not aware of any problems on the mailing list side beyond
what is normal for mailing lists - the problem that needs fixing is the
bad effect the gateway is having on the *newsgroup*. And I already
explained why I think this discussion is relevent for the group, and
should be carried in the group, even though it's not formally "on topic"
(if it had concerned the mailing list side, there would of course not be
any justification for it).

If you can find another group with such a broken gateway setup, I guess
that could be considered an option - I've never come across one in 20+
years of using Usenet and running news servers, but admittely I frequent
a rather limited set of groups.
