as mentioned at TMO, usenet did it last century why cant we do it?
Mailinglists have several options to import and export.

My idea is to keep both and put it technicaly not visibly together.

I like reading stuff as list-threads, export the TMO threads to the list
and import the list to TMO.

That stops this argument instantly and solves the problem without
hurting people.

Sure TMO would need to be moderated at the point of export (Community

Or a special subforum mods may move threads to for including in the
list?! List would show up at this forum as default. So no threads will
be started at TMO subforum but moved to it.
