If you want to have two extra spaces between the subject and the author,
and an extra space between the subject and everything before it, change
the above lines:

'(gnus-sum-thread-tree-leaf-with-other "")
'(gnus-sum-thread-tree-single-leaf "")
'(gnus-summary-line-format "%[%U%R%2i %d%]  %B   %(%f%)%*   
"))

To display the ancient low scored articles you'll need a brighter color:

'(gnus-summary-low-ancient ((t (:foreground "yellow"))))

To not spend too much resources displaying news you aren't interested in
anyway, you can change the display (see below) and add the following to
the above:

'(gnus-fetch-old-headers t)


> The window layout:

>       (article 1.0)))
> (setq gnus-parameters
>       '((".*"
>      (display . all))))
>

The display can be changed to avoid getting all the news in large
groups:

(display . default)
