Cleanfeed filters the articles as they come in.  So rather than the
relatively primitive filtering provided by your ME entry, you'd have a
nice sophisticated mechanism (capable of denying binaries in the wrong
groups, for example, regardless of name).  Anyway, that's not your issue

Oh.  Ok, then it's definitely not a problem with your newsfeeds file.
(Except maybe the innfeed entry, but that looked fine, as I recall.)

Is this sporadic?  That is, do any articles ever get to that peer?

Hmm...things to check:

- is your innfeed.conf right
- does the article appear in ~news/log/news on the remote server
