Barry,

First, I want to apologize.  I (badly) misread your email, but in case I
should not have responded that way.  I would have gotten this out sooner,
but I was traveling back from the CableLabs conference.


Second, my assertion is simply that Usenet servers aren't automagically
symmetrical in their bandwidth usage and that trying to build a system off
of NNTP so that each broadband subscriber became in effect a Usenet server
wouldn't work well without significant modifications.

Third, if anyone cares the Usenet server we ran was news.america.net
