I face the same problem a lot of times. It's very annoying. The only
solutions that I could find so far are: `gnus-summary-refer-thread'
(bound to `A T` in the summary buffer) and
`gnus-summary-insert-old-articles' (bound to `/ o`) which I use if the
former doesn't work.

If you find something better, please share it in this thread and
hopefully I will be able to find it later. :)
