So long as I continue to receive my gopher e-mails without having to
deal with a web interface, count me happy.
But I am a bit confused, though...The Google Groups privacy notice
You need a Google Account to create a group or post comments in the
Google Groups service. 
Yet the Google Groups FAQ seems to state the opposite:
Activities that don't require a Google Account:
* Reading posts in public groups
* Searching for groups, posts, or authors
* Posting to groups via email if they are unrestricted or you're
already a member
* Joining a public Google Group via email 
It really doesn't matter to me, as I have a Google account...but, it
might matter otherwise to someone who might want to join the list but
would rather not be forced to create a Google account to participate.
