Lists have been assimilated into the Internet tribe, while Usenet
newgroups maintain a guarded independence.
There is a gateway between SAS-L the list and comp.soft-sys.sas the
newsgroup; when the gods are pleased each will be a mirror of the other,
but the gods are often displeased.
There's no way to tell whether there are more newsgroup readers or
mailing list readers, but my guess is that there are more mailing list
posters. Perhaps Joe has statistics on this.

I always thought that newsgroups belong to the USENET tribe while lists
belong to the BITNET tribe. Admittedly, however, I'm not very well
in this area.
