NNTP-Ext 1.3.1 The TAKETHIS command

    TAKETHIS <message-id>

    TAKETHIS is used to send articles to a server when in streaming
    mode. The entire article (header and body, in that sequence) is
    sent immediately after the peer sends the TAKETHIS command. The
    peer does not have to wait for a response from the server before
    sending the next command and the associated article.

    During transmission of the article, the peer should send the entire
    article, including header and body, in the manner specified for text
    transmission from the server. See RFC977, Section 2.4.1 for details.

    Responses that are of the form X3X must specify the message-id in
    the response.

1.3.2.  Responses

        239 article transferred ok
        400 not accepting articles
        439 article transfer failed
        480 Transfer permission denied
        500 Command not understood
