Agreed ... but it is an option ... the pgsql.* is now being carried by 
both Supernews and Stanford (two of the larger distribution points), and 
have been entered into ISC's list of official newsgroups ... hopefully, 
Google will be carrying it soon too ...

The point isn't to replace one with the other (I prefer the lists myself, 
since anti-spam filters are easier to deal with), only to provide options 
...
