Not just "other place" but other _process_ - it's not part of the way
you work with your mail/news messages. Opening Google Groups in a
content tab is still a completely different work flow - you even can't
reply or forward properly, etc.

Occasionally, with probability increasing with age of the posting.
Most of my message searches usually fall into the keeping time of my
news server, so I don't need to touch GG, though.
