Personally, I think making the plug list a newsgroup would be a Bad
Thing.  The whole reason I subscribe to this list in the first place
is because it is *not* a newsgroup.

As for making the list closed, I personally don't care.  I do have a
dial-up connection, but fetchmail downloaded all those disgruntled
postmaster messages in the background; I saw nothing.  Does anybody
actually know any non-subscribers who have posted to the list?  How
would they feel if you made the list a closed list?
