You should consider to use a real mail client like mutt or Thunderbird
instead of a browser.  This is a mailing list, not a web forum or a
newsgroup, despite the fact that it's possible to read and write this
mailing list via gmane.  See http://cygwin.com/lists.html for more
information about the available lists.

Please don't reply to this mail since that's going off-topic pretty
