The motto of nn is its expanded name, which is "No News is good
news, but nn is better", and the nn newsreader is designed to let you
minimize the amount of time you spend reading news (or, more
realistically, to allow you to follow even more newsgroups :-).
Nn allows you to quickly select articles of interest and skip the
rest.  It also supports efficient article killing and selection of
articles by author and subject.
This version of nn reads news from a news server via NNTP (the
Network News Transfer Protocol), and can make use of your NNTP
server's NOV database, if configured.  You must have a news server
available - large sites usually provide a site-wide server.  (For
those familiar with 'nn', this is a client-only version.)
