That's similar to how I read, although if there's too much to read, I choose 
what to read on a single page then press D.

btw, k junks only the current subject, not the entire thread if the subject 
has changed; J marks the entire thread as read including multiple subjects.

I have forgotten a command. Somehow, I've got a specific group set to enter 
as Subjects rather than Threads. I know how to change it back to Threads 
once I'm in the group but I cannot remember how to change it so I enter the 
group as Threads, not Subjects. Also, what file is this setting stored in? I 
couldn't find it in the files in my .trn directory and it's not a .newsrc 
setting, of course.

Whoops! Patrick, I apologize for carelessly replying to your message in Mail 
rather than via the list. What a noob.
