Thanks for this.  That's what I thought but I wanted to be sure,
unfortunately I don't understand NNTP conversations as well as I should.

I realise that this isn't essentially fetchnews's problem.  But would it
be a Good Thing if there was a way for Fetchnews to bail out of this
connection after a set period of time, especially as being unable to post then stops
the subsequent download of new news, plus it's a scary thought on metered
internet access.

I'm presuming that this isn't the timeout that's already in the
configuration file, that's just for the initial connection IIRC.

Note I'm running Leafnode 1.9.7 ( haven't upgraded as hoping to get new
laptop with new job in a couple of weeks )

If email began the decline of proper english usage,
then SMS finished the job ;)
