Read-only groups
Some groups are read-only. These are typically groups for announcements, publication or CVS log messages. Other groups are non-public. These are mailing lists that don't accept messages from non-subscribers. If you try to post to either of these kinds of groups, you'll get a bounce message from Gmane informing you of this. Some non-public mailing lists allow you to subscribe, and then alter the status of the subscription so that it doesn't actually send you any mail. You can then read the group via Gmane, and post to the list "manually" -- by sending mail directly to the mailing list.

Gmane has most of the Document Foundations lists (except developer and announce) set as public. If you subscribe to this list through gmane the message will be sent but will not get posted to the list. No bounce message will be sent to the poster.

The new user will wonder what happened to their message and blame the project. Imagine this is on the user list with a newcomer trying to get help. They likely will get rid of LibreOffice if they perceive that they can't get help. Very unprofessional.
