Though gmail has a nasty habit of not sending your own messages to you (the 
ones that you send to the list), so it tends to screw up the threading. And 
since gmail's threads are linear, they don't handle the mesage hierarchy very 
well. I've always used a client on my machine which _is_ able to handle all of 
the threading correctly (or at least far better than gmail). And while I used 
to use gmail for the e-mail address (even if I didn't use it for reading any 
e-mail), I stopped due to issues like it not sending my own e-mails to me. I 
switched to gmx.com, which isn't quite a stable, but feature-wise it's much 
better IMHO.

Regardless, having an IMAP account and using the mailing list can work quite 
well - especially if you're trying to access the newsgroup on multiple 
computers and therefore have to worry about syncing between them.
