Every once in a while someone asks whether I plan to add support for reading newsgroups via NNTP to RSS Bandit. I believe I've reached the point where I'm bored enough to actually give it a shot and since there don't seem to be any freely available libraries that provide this functionality for .NET and have licencing requirements I'm comfortable with I may have to write the NNTP code myself.

The only question is whether this is actually functionality people are interested in or not. I definitely would use it since I monitor newsgroups like microsoft.public.dotnet.xml and microsoft.public.xml but would the average RSS Bandit user think it was a worthwhile feature or would my time be better spent elsewhere?
