I only used NNTP after its prime, participating in a few comp.lang.*
groups.  In 2022, I don't see much difference between an NNTP newsgroup
and a mailing list + archive. I've setup sieve filters in my fastmail
account that sort mailing list mail into an NNTP-like hierarchy by
reversing the domain name. For example, mail on this list goes to
`org/9front/9front`.

What can NNTP do that can't be done with any mailing list?
