I'm getting the impression that providing good news service doesn't need
that, only providing good warez service does (and this includes all
copyrighted pictures/video/audio media binaries).

If folks would end abusing NNTP for file distribution via flooding, the
matter would quickly be resolved. Am i naive?

And prolly 349GB/day being exactly the crap you mention.
