Well that's reason enough for me! UUCP should be good enough for all of
you, with your newfangled NNTP and HTTP and stuff. And man, am I angry
that my ISP turned off telnet in favor of some upstart protocol called
SHH or something....  ;-)

But yeah, I can see where this might be one of those things that might
be better as an option rather than an exclusive behavior. I'm not a fan
of this kind of threading - when I sort on date, I like things from the
same date to all be together - not jumbled around within various threads.

As an option like "sort thread by most recent post date", I can see
where some folks would find it useful -- after, I also hate threading
email messages, but I know some folks who do it.
