Sites with more info about yEnc

Sites without info about yEnc:

News providers with yEnc capable web-interface

This list contains only providers which notified me directly that they support yEnc.

Please keep in mind that reading such binary news from a webbased news-server will NOT speedup downloads - as they are already decoded 8bit binaries. So there yEnc offers NO download speed improvements. I have no background info how such web-based newsprovider are handling corrupt messages (but I assume they do).
