Has the upstream news server changed in that time?

The upstream servers might discard articles that have illegal domains in
the Message-ID - Google have fixed some issues on their site
recently. I'm not sure what changes exactly they made.

If you're posting an article and editing the text takes longer than 900 s,
this is "normal".

We have too little information to figure that out at this
time. Systematic tests across several _test_ groups (de.test for
