Na, I think you misunderstood Dan (either that, or I'm misunderstading
Dan). You can have serveral different types of newsgroup for usenet --
private vs. public, and moderated vs. unmoderated. I think Dan's gonna
setup the q-list usenet group to be private and unmoderated. That means
that particular newsgroup will only be available from Dan's newsserver --
and not from any other. As such, the newsgroup will only be available if
you deliberately point your news reader to Dan's newsserver address.
Accessability of such newsgroup is on par with current q-mail-list setup
-- anyone who knows the address can drop in for a chat (or spam).
