Correct me if I'm wrong (I'm sure someone will), but I
thought the task at hand is creating a reliable
gateway to stream the messages to (and from?) Usenet.
Personally, I prefer threaded discussion to a constant
stream of emails throughout the day. The other nice
thing about Usenet is messages are automatically
archived and available for searching by Google.
