Why do you say that?

On what grounds is an architecture where the newreader archives the posts
better than an architecture where the local-newsserver/news-cache 
archives the posts?

I would have thought the latter was better, because if the newsserver
allows the archives to be accessed by nntp, you can still look at them
if you change newsreader.

Comments, anyone?
