Look closely, seems he misunderstood:

Normally c.o.l.a is .announce and that is probably what he is
thinking of. We want to announce NEW HOWTOs and UPDATES to
cola but c.o.l.answers is for regular broadcasts.

Also the c.o.l.answers is moderated, here is an old heading:
From: Linux Journal <linux@ssc.com>
Newsgroups: comp.os.linux.answers
Subject: FAQ -- Linux Journal
Date: 11 Jan 1999 09:26:18 -0800
Organization: Specialized Systems Consultants, Inc.
Lines: 400
Approved: linux-answers@news.ornl.gov
Message-ID: <77dc7q$b0b$1@ripple.ssc.com>
Reply-To: linux@ssc.com
Mail-To: linux-answers@news.ornl.gov
Archive-to: linux/linux-journal-faq

The moderator for this group is Approved: linux-answers@news.ornl.gov
which is different from linux-announce@news.ornl.gov (Mikko Rauhala).
Incidentally I noticed a few old postings in .answers without the
approved line. I am not entirely sure about the status of that group.
