Mutt users prefer discussions in their mailing-list. I don't see much
discussion here.

Probably because mutt doesn't support reading news.

Well some can patch mutt to read NNTP. I had this set up with
neomutt once, but I'm not sure if there's a similar way to do the
same to mutt.

Nonetheless, most of the time it's better to use mail clients for
mail and news clients for news, right?

My thoughts entirely, I use mutt for mail and tin for news.

The only caveat is that you might have to learn a new set of
shortcuts. In case of mutt it is good that it is fully customisable.

Yes, I *occasionally* forget whether I'm in mutt or tin but it doesn't
happen often enough for me to want to bother changing key mapping to
make them the same.  Keeping with the default key-mapping means that
when helping/getting help we all talk the same 'language'.

That is true. I completely agree. I prefer default settings in most
tools.

Mostly agreed, but mutt does some things very nicely that other news
clients don't do.  I use "l" to limit the message list to certain
criteria very frequently.  Gnus (emacs) does it; slrn (my preferred
console newsreader) does not, that I'm aware of.

Yes this is really useful feature when we really want to catch up by
reading through all the messages 50 at a time.

One nice touch that tin has is being mouse aware, you can click on
groups, messages, etc. to select them which is occasionally handy when
there's a lot on one screen.
