I only like Nabble for its read capabilities (the notion of grouping
multiple lists into one meta-forum, the idea of always floating the
threads with the most recent posts to the top).  gmane's web read
capabilities are less than stellar, not to mention that gmane still munges
email addresses (but at least "orig <at> orig" is easier to reconstruct
than "address@hidden") and makes life very hard when tracking cross-posted
threads.  But I agree hands down that gmane's posting ability is better
than nabble's.  Still, I wish there were a web posting site that allowed
cross-posting, even if only to a thread that were already cross-posted.
