Ah, but does your newsreader automatically delete all the other messages?
Hah!  Some time-saver it is.

I used to use nn (NoNews).  Now THAT was a good newsreader -- or news
ignorer as the case may be.  In most newsreaders the default is to read
every message; in NN the default is to ignore every message.  A pity I
couldn't set it up to forge cancels for every message and save everyone
else's time ;-).
