We run outgoing feeds with innduct, which provides a real-time feed,
but which is not innfeed.  Relevantly, this means you can safely set
"noresendid" to false (see incoming.conf(5)) as innduct will wait a
while before re-offering 431'd articles.

We won't send binaries at all since we ask our peers not to send
them to us and anyway our cleanfeed will drop them.

We are a private site with around 200 shell account users; we also
provide ex gratia access to all users at Cambridge University, and
host moderators for sci.astro.research, sci.physics.research,
uk.rec.cycling.moderated and uk.legal.moderated.

Statistics can be found here:

(We are sound for bofhnet and Usenet-2, and also carry some private
 hierarchies (eg oxbridge, ucam); ask specially.)
