OT Missing OP's

Been using news.blueyonder.co.uk to read messages, but 8 times out of 10 the original post is missing, I can only get the gist of it from the replies.
Anything I can do?

Same problem, news.blueyonder.co.uk has a very limited history of articles.
text.news.blueyonder.co.uk is far better. Why the two different servers? And how on earth does one find these things out?

The story goes a bit like this. A few days ago someone at VM restarted one of their News Server machines with the wrong date as a result they began to spew out posts from December 2006 if you look carefully at the headers you will see a line like X-Received-Date: Tue, 26 Dec 2006 These posts have propagated beyond VM in the normal way.
If the OP in a particular thread wasn't via VM then it will start from the first reply that was, and then all the follow-ups subsequently in the thread irrespective as to whether they were posted via VM or not. Anyway, thats the situation AFAIK.
