nntp.perl.org vs

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Alas, nntp.perl.org does not support getting articles by <Message-ID>. Try e.g.,
use Net::NNTP;
for (qw/news.gmane.org nntp.perl.org/) {
    my $nntp = Net::NNTP->new( $_, Debug => 1 );
According to http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3977 If such non support was
intentional, they should return "503 feature not supported" I suppose.
