What's the difference between using a normal connection and an SSL connection on a newsreader?

SSL is encryption, if you have it enabled then all connections to the usenet server will be encrypted. It comes in useful if your paranoid about people using packet sniffing and other methods to see what your doing, also sometimes bypasses ISP throttling. :)
