I found the problem. An error on my part but still leaving one question

The error I mas was that I removed the nntp-authinfo-file lines from my
gnus select calls when I first tried epa with gnus and authinfo. I could
however still enter those groups, read articles and post so they were
logged into (motzarella/eternal-september which does require user

Replacing the authinfo line so

(add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods
              '(nntp "motzarella"
                       (nntp-authinfo-file "~/.authinfo.gpg")
                       (nntp-address "")
                       (nntp-port-number 119)

and then yes, everything is fine. So just to clarify, must one provide
this line (clearly I could use auth-sources here)? If so, I wonder how
I was able to read and post with outit (albeit with gnus not showing
the article count *most times*).
