Hi Bo,

If someone uses INN with a binaries feed, yes, but I doubt it is the case.
Specific servers like news.gmane.io may receive more messages too.

(in 2014)
"There are roughly 45 billion articles stored on our servers and on 
average, we receive between 450 and 500 articles per second. In fact, in 
the past 2000 days, 1 exabyte of data has been transferred."

Gosh, 500 articles per second for binaries!

So, should the default values be changed to reflect normal usage of text 
feeds?  (30 seconds and 1,000 articles for a transaction?)
