Have you actually bothered to try this?  I can see no reference in
fetchnews to the use of plain LIST, and certainly none in nntpactive()
which only uses LIST NEWSGROUPS and LIST ACTIVE.

Running fetchnews against the server for the first time gives:

| Trying to connect to cipher.wizards.com ... connected.
| Getting all newsgroups from cipher.wizards.com
| Reading all newsgroups failed.

which doesn't look too succesful to me.

I saw in a newsgroup.
