Thanks, but I do already know how to run leafnode -- been doing that with 
news.individual.net for a few years.
Just wondered if that's what you were using for gmane, sorry if I wasn't 
clear. Anyway, I think sticking with the straight list is probably fine 
for me at this point. It's always good to have alternative options if 
needed, but gmane seems a bit of a kludge to me frankly, and now there's 
that shadow of doubt cast by this whole "joelassistly" thing... 
(Though it may have nothing to do with gmane, but IDK).
