I think this is a question more related to news admin in general than
the linux community.  However, one idea would be, if your machine is on
the net, to run an nntp newserver system on your machine (i.e. inn), and
then, let people just use your nntp server (i believe tin and trn can
pick nntp server sites w/an environment variable).
