I call them spurious because they're not relevant to an NNTP client -
they're the result of Mozilla's combining mail and a newsgroup. I've
never come accross most of these headers in a usenet group - though that
doesn't mean they don't occur somewhere.
But you're right - the client is broken. But it's the only
usable client on Android so it means I can't contribute to the m.support
groups on mobile.
