This is fine except that all the spam that gets posted to the
newsgroup would be then gatewayed to the mailing list, which would really
suck. Spam control is one of the very nice features of these mailing
lists since you need to be subscribed in order to send messages.
BTW, I don't think incoming e-mail is counted in your disk
quota on many systems (?). It's only an issue if you save those
messages to files in your home directory. (Someone can privately
correct me if I'm wrong).
