That is both clever and worrying. I would prefer to expend
a little effort plonking threads (perhaps according to criteria,
such as who started the thread) than to have some unknown
other persons/processes deciding that for me.
It turns out it's merely buggy; turning off threaded view brought back
the complete thread. A bug has been filed.
It *does* seem to have figured out that the ongoing crapflood in
rec.games.roguelikes.nethack is not worthy of my attention, though;
neither threaded nor non-threaded view shows posts from it until I
turn "hide read posts" off.
That is pretty interesting. What newsreader are you using?
I suspect it is the "User-Agent:" shown here..
it is. It's... adequate. The killfile sucks for anything other than
plonk-by-author or plonk-by-crossposts, and I haven't figured out if,
never mind how, it can show the full headers on articles. On the
other hand, it gets line wrapping and quoting Right and the built-in
editor doesn't make me reach for TextMate or emacs immediately, and
the support for media groups is great.
Anyone have a better suggestion for an OS X newsreader? slrn and trn
suggestions met with gales of laughter. :)
