Maybe we're talking about different things. After I'm done reading a
group, I press 'c' to mark everything as read and exit the group. At a
later point in time, when I reenter the group, Gnus will only show the
unread messages. It's at that time that it seems to have forgotten about
thread scores. I'll have to research scoring more and see if that will
do what I need to. I'd really prefer a simple boolean though i.e. I just
want to indicate the threads I'm interested in so new messages aren't
lost in the noise. Something like tick for threads I guess.
