Well, it's caused me problems (which I could fix, once I figured it
out) when leafnode thought a group was unmoderated because one
upstream server had it incorrectly flagged.  In fact, leafnode kept
reposting the message (through a server which did know that the group
was moderated) every time cron ran fetchnews until the message
appeared, and I inadvertently annoyed the group's moderators.
