Hm, works for me.  What does `C-h k DEL' on an article in Summary (or
inside the article buffer) say?

I think, the color shows the article's score.  The O means "old".

| `gnus-summary-make-false-root'
|      If non-`nil', Gnus will gather all loose subtrees into one big tree
|      and create a dummy root at the top.  (Wait a minute.  Root at the
|      top?  Yup.)  Loose subtrees occur when the real root has expired,
|      or you've read or killed the root in a previous session.
|      When there is no real root of a thread, Gnus will have to fudge
|      something.  This variable says what fudging method Gnus should use.
|      There are four possible values:
|     `adopt'
|           Gnus will make the first of the orphaned articles the parent.
|           This parent will adopt all the other articles.  The adopted
|           articles will be marked as such by pointy brackets (`<>')
|           instead of the standard square brackets (`[]').  This is the
|           default method.
|     `dummy'
|           [...]
