I have my leafnode set as:

## If your newsreader does not supply a Message-ID for your postings
## Leafnode will supply one, using the hostname of the machine it is
## running on.  If this hostname is not suitable, this parameter can be
## used to override it.  Do not use a fantasy name, it may interfere with
## the propagation of your messages.  Most modern newsreaders do provide
## a Message-ID.
# hostname = host.domain.country
hostname = 

However, I also use newscene.com as my upstream nntp provider. They do not
post a NNTP-Posting-Host: entry. Consquently, I maintain my
privacy on news groups. Hence, even if you change your hostname it will not
protect your privacy is your provider uses NNTP-Posting-Host. Most
non-anonymous nntp providers will use it. For example, I also use the spamcop
news server. Even though my reference information is news.invalid.99computer,
my NNTP-Posting-Host ends up being the domain name of my server  due to
reverse DNS lookup. I do not do a lot of posting there so I live with it. 

I understand your issue about privacy. My iptables' logs overflow from cracker
and relay attempts. I have put in -j DROP on entire blocks of ip addresses
from certain troublesome countries to try to reduce the problem.
