[Some info deleted]

| Anyhow, the whole thing is probably meaningless, 'cause
| some of the articles I saw as posted to only comp.sys.3b1
| could have started life as unix-pc.general, and then
| become transformed to comp.sys.3b1 by B news aliasing
| somewhere along the way.  There WERE interesting things
| in the data, like NO articles in "just" comp.sys.3b1
| from my main feeds.   That's why I'm still wondering
| whether att is carrying/forwarding comp.sys.3b1 as such.

I don't know if this helps, but my main feed is att and I see comp.sys.3b1
only articles.  I'll do some further checking to verify this, but I am 99.99%
sure that they are passing comp.*.3b1.
