There's always a lot more stuff from other people than from you.
Unless you expect every server to connect directly to every other
server, you're going to end up with a small set of well connected
servers that feed stub servers and send way more than they receive,
and the stubs that receive way more than they send.

I have run usenet servers pretty much continuously for over 20 years,
and Usenet has always been like that.
