Gnus is one of those Emacs applications that requires extensive
juggling of elisp.  It's awesome, I use it, but if you really want its
benefits, you're forced to deal with its complexity.  The best
suggestion is to work with somebody else's ~/.gnus and work with that
until it turns into something that you find usable.
