You don't have to!  I wasn't suggesting it, just asking whether it was.

If it's set, you won't see not-for-mail on the reader machine, since the
articles go straight through on account of nnrpdposthost.

If the only thing feeding the reader box is newstransit, the only articles
innfeed should be sending from reader to newstransit are new posts (and if
nnrpdposthost is set, not even those).  So if you're still seeing articles
being fed back to newstransit, we need to pursue that.

If you have nnrpdposthost set, you need the reader server to appear in
newstransit's incoming.conf.  If not, you should be seeing not-for-mail
lines in reader's "news" for each post.
