Have a look at the prevalence of KNode in KDE newsgroups (also SuSE/Madr*).
When compared with other newsgroups, it's evident that the inclusion by
default makes it rather popular. I sometimes wish that I explored Pan
earlier on. Development on KNode seems rather slow. And not because it's
perfect...! You could have filters that track to learn (somewhat like song
recommendations engines), more shortcuts, and Easter eggs too...
