Some adjustments you could try to see if they help:

(setq gnus-use-cross-reference t)
(setq gnus-thread-indent-level 2)
(setq gnus-thread-sort-functions '(gnus-thread-sort-by-subject))

I find that sorting threads by subject does a decent job of putting
related articles together, even when their original context is no longer
in the article summary.

Next, use Gnus article scoring to highlight articles you've posted and
replies to them:

* Increase score in all newsgroups on articles "From" you (<r@dev.null>)


* Increase score in all newsgroups on articles with "References" that
  include "fsf@dev.null>"

The easiest way to do that is usually to start by going to an article
you posted.

The scoring rules should end up in News/all.SCORE and (depending on what
you left in the string to match on) might look something like:

  ("r@dev\\.null" 1000 nil r))
  ("\\.fsf@dev\\.null>" 1000 nil r))

[I'm not certain about the "\\." instead of just plain "." above, but I
think it's a regular expression and thus needs \. to prevent "." from
being the 1-char wild card.]

If you follow groups that are very active, setting a number-of-articles
limit such as

(setq gnus-large-newsgroup 400)

might also be helpful.  If there are more articles than the limit, you
get the choice of which (oldest or newest), and how many to view.
