When Mode contains the the value mtStream, the client connection wishes to suspend the conversational nature of NNTP, and send a stream of NNTP commands. mtStream is used with TakeThis, where articles are sent to an NNTP server in streaming mode. mtStream causes the NNTP MODE STREAM command to be issued after the connection to the server is opened in Connect

mtReader is the default value for Mode, as assigned in the Create constructor.
