I used to gate mailing lists into cnews, and then just use tin with
well-developed killfiles. Been a while though since I've touched a news system
at all. (long live sizone.uucp! :) Unfortunately I haven't gotten mutt to the
tin level (though collapsing threads makes reading the index easier..).
(Ctrl-D to kill an entire thread in mutt btw.)

Congrats on the record breaking thread! If anyone wants to TL;DR Im mildly
interested in the results of this 'wisdom of the cloud' brainstorm. Certainly
ipv6 is well solved by now.

Happy Brave New ipv6 Year!
