In that case I suppose the biggest argument against R-help becoming a newsgroups would be the small user base.
In fact, it came a bit as a shock to me (but I'm alright now).

r-help mailing list -- Read http://www.ci.tuwien.ac.at/~hornik/R/R-FAQ.html
Send "info", "help", or "[un]subscribe"
(in the "body", not the subject !)  To: r-help-request at stat.math.ethz.ch
