Many of us do not run news servers, and you have to 'login' to access it. 
E-mail works because it is ubiquitous. IRC and Mud type interfaces
are probably better for casual use, and real time coordination during 
outages, crisis or events requiring synchronous participation. 
When we start having weird network conditions, I have learned to
quickly scan my mailbox for NANOG and Dshield and a few other lists.. 
sometimes it helps. E-Mail's great for this. It's there when I need it.

A more robust configuration for the NANOG e-mail list would be my 
first choice. Maybe a backup east/west coast listserv address: [email protected] 
just syncing the mailing list address daily would be enough? 
I've got mailman running....
