There is a reason Usenet hasn't gone the way of Gopher, and I assure you 
it isn't because of the the copious spam, net kooks, and trolls. There is 
a certain type of content that people want, and I'll give you one guess 
what that is... If you don't carry that content, you'll probably be doing 
more traffic in backscatter on the IP space then you will in NNTP. :)
