Umm.  You are posting from the reader machine, right?  Search for the
Message-ID of one of your posts.

Oh, do you have nnrpdposthost set in inn.conf on the reader?

Err...look at "patharticles" in inn.conf

Or just run ~news/bin/sm `~news/bin/grephistory '<messageid at here>'`.

Except those are not from your reader machine.  Weren't we seeing the
transit rejecting articles from the reader?
