Another +1. I always find it painful to sign up for yet another account
on yet another web service. No, I have no OpenID account, nor am I
planning to create one. Also I strictly refuse to go to Reddit or
StackOverflow. I agree that having to track three independent sites is
stupid and not in any way productive.
Mailing lists and newsgroups share one very desirable property: They
are independent of the design choices of a single entity, whereas in
Reddit and StackOverflow the webmasters choose what's supposed to be
good for you.
To say that by not going to Reddit/StackOverflow you miss a lot of
information is almost like propaganda, a cheap way to enforce one's
preferences. A professional community member should never say such a
thing. Personal opinion.
