    I haven't yet noticed a drop-off in messages appearing in
    international newsgroups on the Clear/Paradise news server.

    Then Telstraclear must be running a go-slow or brownout in some
    groups, even if not in others.

    For example, in alt.comp.freeware the last post on the Clear/Paradise server
    is from the 19th at 17:31:54 NZ time. On other servers there are another 420
    posts after it; the most recent from the 21st at 19:50:50 NZ time. That makes
    the Clear/Paradise server over 48 hours behind the rest of the world.
