I don't know why but there seem to be at least two kinds of news
servers as for the gnu.emacs.gnus newsgroup; [1]one allows nntp
posting but doesn't forward articles to the list, [2]the other
doesn't allow nntp posting but forwards articles posted to the
list to the newsgroup.  Some of [2] may moderate nntp-posted
articles, i.e. forward articles to the list.  For example:


Both are open to people for free but both don't forward nntp-
posted articles to the list. :-<  I guess this problem is due to
some newsservers that took it for granted that the group is
moderated.  As for [2] the nntp command `list newsgroups' returns:

gnu.emacs.gnus  News reading under GNU Emacs using GNUS (in English). 
(There's no entry for gnu.emacs.gnus in [1].)

Whereas says in

gnu.emacs.gnus          News reading under GNU Emacs using GNUS (in English).

A possible workaround may be the one like this article. ;-)
