Why is my alt.* or alt.binaries.* performance so much lower?

There can be any number of causes, but they all boil down to this: binaries and warez (and to some extent alt.*) articles are treated and propagated differently.
Perhaps your feed isn't sending articles over a certain size. Perhaps binaries get lower priority.
It probably is not due to spam. See I spam filter like a madman. Won't this throw things off?

So what if I do poorly in an alt.* newsgroup? No one cares anyway.
Why do some sites decide to not carry binaries or alt.*?
How do news articles get "missed?"
What is considered "excellent" or "good" or "poor" performance?
