Well, this brings an idea to my mind, but I'm not sure whether I'm

|server = news.individual.net
|... the lines concerning this server ...
|server = your.isp's.server
|... the lines concerning your isp's server ...

So leafnode knows about all your servers. Articles come and go to all of
them. *But*: Articles should be sent to news.individual.net first, then

chance that your isp will reject your article as "already known".
