Well, I configured it. Thinking that it needed to be set. Doesn't that
setting do anything ? Or does it only work with some news servers and
not others ? How does one know which news server that works with and
which news server it doesn't work with ?

filters help ? Wouldn't all posts from Gmane have the same added

Well, looking for "gmane" headers on a post gives me something like...
Approved: news at gmane.org
by lo.gmane.org with esmtp (Exim 4.50)
by main.gmane.org with esmtp (Gmexim 0.1 (Debian))
Xref: news.gmane.org .......
I have no idea how any of that could help filter out posts that aren't
from legitimate subscribers. :-(
