1) Usenet news is a lot easier to deal with than a mailing list.
Mailboxes get full and you have to wade through the list stuf to get to
your personal mail.
2) Just because it lands in your mailbox (or in your favorite
newsgroup, doesnt mean you have to read it. Just as you can trash
unopened junk mail at home, so can you delete unread mail if it has a
subject line that does not appeal to you.
3) Real net hackers learn to set up their newsreaders to delete
things that they consider junk automatically. It is possible to explude
any messages written by a particular person for example.
