Another option is to set wanttrash to true in inn.conf and restart INN.
All rejected articles will then be accepted and will show up in the
newsgroup "junk" and can be read as normal.

Warning:  This can potentially be a *lot* of articles and if you're not
storing junk in a CNFS buffer or the like, you can easily fill your disk.
