I hardly see how cygwin-talk needs to be gatewayed onto another
interface. It's not meant for Cygwin support of any kind, just random
chitchat and continuation of threads that have veered completely
off-topic on the main list.
Therefore almost anyone who is not already familiar with the Cygwin
lists who posts to the -talk list is almost certainly guaranteed to be
posting in the wrong place -- and they will be received with taunting
and nonsense of hippos and LSD and such, as in this case.
I think your users would benefit more from not even having it presented
as a possible place to get support.
