Yeah, Robert, it could be done this way.  The SCREEN-L-Usenet gateway could
be made "uni-directional":  SCREEN-L to Usenet, but not Usenet to SCREEN-L.
Or, it could be bi-directional:  SCREEN-L to Usenet *and* Usenet to
It's our choice...if we choose to make the connection at all.

Yes, that's my impression.  And I myself only recently found a way into
Usenet that wasn't so cumbersome as to make it use*less*.
Let me stress once again:  even if we do open this gateway, SCREEN-L would
continue to be available through e-mail as it currently is.  Indeed, that
would continue to be the *main* was SCREEN-L operates.
