That's not what I want :-). What I want is to fetch just SOME
groups that were not in the Taiwan servers, I don't really care if
there are articles missing from the Taiwanese side : I'll get them
later. Would putting a ! in front of the newsgroups I'm not interested
in in /var/spool/news/leaf.node/my.news.server be sufficient ?
