I think this is only people using Netscape browsers. Microsoft Interenet Explorer 3 doesn't understand this particular abuse, and nor do any of caching proxies available from my office (not that I can find a caching proxy that understands nntp: either, but at least the reject it without getting confused). (MSIE 3 tries to launch Microsoft News, which tries for the default news server.) Personally, I think any such interpretation of news:// should be enabled by an option which defaults to disabled, to just make people aware that the URL is broken.
