The newsgroup won't get less spam unless you can convince to
actually delete the mailing list and thus shut down the gateway, while
at the same time keeping the newsgroup.

Count me out.  I don't do news much any more -- e-mail is far easier for
me to handle.  I'll stay on the list and continue to campaign for
subscriber-only access (which will at least kill half the spam or more).
