That's a good point... or points. I also like newsgroups, but I haven't
used them in a while, probably because most of discussions about haskell
take place on mailing lists.

Maybe it's time to register comp.lang.haskell?

Could someone tell me something about fa.haskell? Is it a mirror of
haskell at haskell.org? Can it be used to post messages through NNTP?

Not that I know of.

How about an integrated newsgroup+mailinglist+forum. If we had a
two-way newsgroup+mailinglist integration, people could use it also
as a forum, for example through gmail.google.com. But I don't use
fora, so I probably talk nonsense.

Best regards
