I was surprised and greatly pleased to read your post about Scribus list 
access as a news group.

So, I set up a new news group account for news.gmane.org and was 
additionally pleased to see Inkscape and LibreOffice news groups on that 
domain as well. So, I subscribed to Scribus and some for the others.

However, my reply to this post of yours, using the news group setup in 
my TBird v17.0.2, was apparently not posted. This is what I attempted to 

This was certainly a surprise and a great gift and welcome "news."
It seems that there are other useful newsgroups in this
news domain.

Thank you.

For this news group account, I have set my email address the same as I 
have for other news groups I post to: <my name> none at none.org.

That works ok for the others, but is it possible that using that email 
address may be preventing me from posting through news.gmane.org?

Any help with this will be appreciated.
