No not really. Why does winehq feel that they can take over a
usenet group to propigate their posts? If they want a forum let
them set up their own. If they want to tell usenet users of the
forum let them post a weekly message. If they want to send their
responders posts out to the world at least let them know they are
now posting in usenet.

So this is what usenet needs. A group that did not have flames
having flames brought to them by a "private subscription" mailing
