Reading cssmm using MT-NewsWatcher on a MacBook, my eye was caught by a large number of replies to posts that seemingly should have been threaded with the initial post or with earlier replies but that were not --- even when there was already a thread on the same topic in the same batch of posts. A quick look didn't bring up any such instances in other news groups, as least in a quick scan of several others. I think this happens when the replying software uses "Re:__Some Subject" (with two spaces after the "Re:"), although I'd agree that MTNW probably ought to be able to handle multiple spaces in this location. The following recent example exhibits another interesting aspect of this situation. The first line starts a thread (has a triangle in front of it); the second (indented) line is the only additional post in that thread (and is apparently a reply to the original post, not to the second reply that starts the thread); and the third line, which immediately followed the two-post thread is a free-standing post.
