[leafnode-list] Just starting out, looking for hints

I've just installed leafnode 1.11.5-3 from Debian unstable and am using 
it in conjunction with Mozilla Thunderbird, having grown tired of spam 
in debian lists (that was flagged with a cross-post to 
gmane.spam.detected) and had pan and knode lock-up on me and not offer 
much more in the way of filtering.

My /etc/news/config is at the moment:

expire = 31
server = news-server.bigpond.net.au
initialfetch = 1000
groupexpire comp.risks = 365
server = news.gmane.org
initialfetch = 1000
only_groups_pcre = gmane\.
server = news.mozilla.org
initialfetch = 1000
only_groups_pcre = mozilla\.
nodesc = 1
maxcrosspost = 5
filterfile = /etc/news/leafnode/filters
article_despite_filter = 1

with /etc/news/leafnode/filters set to:

^Newsgroups:.*[, ]gmane.spam.detected$
^Newsgroups:.*[, ]gmane.spam.detected,

to remove material cross-posted to gmane.spam.detected.

The only problem so far is that comp.risks only has the most recent 
issue in it, whereas knode fetched the last 17 issues from 

Any suggestions for improvements to the above config or filters welcomed.


PS, I wrote the following script to get my Siemens Speedstream 4200 DSL 
router's FQDN:

nslookup `lynx -dump|grep BUTTON|awk 
'{print $4}'`|grep "="|grep -v ns|awk '{print $4}'

which at present returns:


and manually edited /etc/hosts to read: CPE-124-177-227-100.sa.bigpond.net.au localhost       victoria

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
# (added automatically by netbase upgrade)

::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

Is there a more 'elegant' way to get a fully qualified domain name for
