Do you use a threaded newsreader like Tass or Tin?
I find I can skip articles that don't interest me and locate ones that do
very easily using Tin 1.1, but older newsreaders like "rn" can be hard work
and I suspect much of the motivation to sub-divide groups comes out of
frustration with poor newsreaders.
There is a FAQ about newsreaders that is posted regularly in
news.software.newsreaders and Tin 1.1 was recently posted to
comp.sources.misc which is where I got my copy from.
