Thanks!  This works, indeed. I just don't add your last line about score, as
I'm not interested in a custom sorting based on score.


1. "False" threads seem not to be correctly displayed based on the above rule.
   By false threads, I mean articles bound together based on the subject, not
   on the reference.

   Such threads do not appear to be correctly sorted based on the most recent
   date, but only on the root date. Do you have a similar effect?

2. I've seen a few threads where the internal sorting was crazy, such as:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

     poster5          2007-07-28 03:13  5.2k     │   └─▶ (Fourth answer)
     original-poster  2007-07-24 08:28  5.8k     └─▶ (Question)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

   I can't find back an example of this, but...

3. Have you any specific customization for the threading stuff?

   I just had:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
     (setq gnus-fetch-old-headers nil)  ; nil to speed up

     (setq gnus-build-sparse-threads 'some)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

   but will now adapt those to:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
     (setq gnus-fetch-old-headers 'some)

     (setq gnus-build-sparse-threads 'more)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Thanks for having answered already!
