This is true of any and all news servers.  Due to the way NNTP propegates
messages, it's all too easy for a message to expire on one server before it
gets propegated to the next server in the chain.  There isn't any central
NNTP server anywhere, and it's fully peer-to-peer, so it's literally
*impossible* to guarantee full quality of service with NNTP.
