I used to have this problem with news.hiwaay.net, which would change
back and forth between that and things like news.HiWAAY.Net and
practically every other permutation, sometimes several times a day.
Same deal with News.Traveller.COM (R.I.P.). I don't feed them anymore,
so there's no problem. But I hate it when the STuDlY CaPs folks are in
charge of news service.
On the other hand, I have found it convenient to be case-sensitive when
a rogue site shows up pretending to be some other site and fails to
copy the capitalization correctly.
