I actually appreciate nabble. Since I can't post using my work address
(partly because I don't want that stupid legalese trash appended to
archived message, and partly because they block SMTP from non-work
addresses), I end up using web-based fronts that still allow list posts.
Normally, gmane is better, but when gmane is down (and it is amazing to me
how often they are), I have been known to post from nabble when I am at
work and want to post on my break time rather than waiting for a few hours
to when I am back home. I will not argue with blocking nabble, as I agree
that many clueless users tend to use it, and nabble's handling of posts is
comparatively lousy (they won't even let you reply to all appropriate
lists on a message that was originally cross-posted). So this opinion is
just food for thought, and you can safely ignore it if you want.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
