The reason that this is so is that already-read articles are not
selected, so :.m will never affect already-read articles in the current
thread.  So, perhaps the text "(Keep in mind that already-read articles
are unselected)" should be added to this help text...

I would suggest typing "Ut".  The "U" command is used to mark articles as
unread, and the "t" tells it to operate on the current thread.
