It's taking ~30 seconds between the telnet and getting the banner line. Watching it via Ethereal shows: 1 0.000000 TCP 3144 > nntp [SYN] Seq=0 Ack=0 Win=65535 Len=0 MSS=1460 2 0.055418 TCP nntp > 3144 [SYN, ACK] Seq=0 Ack=1 Win=4096 Len=0 MSS=1460 3 0.055688 TCP 3144 > nntp [ACK] Seq=1 Ack=1 Win=65535 Len=0 4 30.181944 NNTP Response: 200 crater_reader.dragonflybsd.org NNRP ...

The reason why it's taking ~30 seconds to pull up an article is because Thunderbird is (for whatever stupid reason) making multiple connections while I'm reading.

I suspect part of the issue could be that inetd on your end is trying to do a reverse lookup on my IP and timing out -- alas, whatever service they have here has not set up reverse addresses in their nameserver.
