You, sir, are a genius.  I *never* would have guessed that from the
word "accept" (even in quotes :-).

I do too, because larsi is not an idiot.  I have to imagine that like
99% of messages that get moderated into oblivion are spam.  Gmane
doesn't want their archives filled with that crap, so they'll archive
from the moderated stream.

This is starting to look pretty good, actually.  We can hope that this
solution will serve John until MM3 goes "gold" (with an NNTP server :-9.
