I think it's Gnus who's not allowing you to subscribe: square brackets
in group names are by default disallowed. Changing
gnus-ignored-newsgroups to something like (compare with your current

  (setq gnus-ignored-newsgroups
        "^to\\.\\|^[0-9.        ]+\\( \\|$\\)\\|^[\"]]\"[#'()]")

should let you subscribe to any gmail group (it works here, at least).

They say when you play a Microsoft CD backwards you can hear satanic
messages...but that's nothing, if you play it forward it will install
