News.answers submission problem with line length

I am attempting to submit my FAQ (for rec.arts.comics.dc.vertigo) to
news.answers, but can't get past the automated FAQ checker at It appears to be ignoring all characters
beyond the 80th character on the Newsgroups: line, which cuts it off in the
middle of a newsgroup name.

I'm pretty sure this isn't my mailer's fault -- I tried mailing the file to
myself, and it came back fine, with the line perfectly intact. Is it
possible the automated FAQ-checker really isn't working?

I'm using Pine, but the results were exactly the same when I tried using
the unix mailer and emacs mail. What should I do?
