Nor am I switching news server for another reason -- Agent has no
configuration option for using multiple news servers. I'm not changing
all the settings manually, not to mention losing all my read/unread
article information, every time I want to check this newsgroup. The
user isn't supposed have to jump through hoops -- that's the server
administrator's job. Unfortunately whoever runs news at primus doesn't
know a news server from a blocked toilet, it seems.
