Read Threads Disappear!

Hi
I'm using Xnews as news reader

If I read all the items in a thread, next time I go in, the thread has 
disappeared!!

I just can't see where the option is to enable/disable this!

Any ideas, I 've seen this in other News Readers

thread is there but obscured by hippos...

hippo sat on thread, squashing it...

enraged hippo scared thread into hiding...

hippo in tutu embarrassed caused thread to duck under desk...

thread evolved into higher entity - it's still there you just need to
be telepathic to see it...*

hyperthreaded/dual-core machine caused thread malfunction...

never forget that it is threads which are responsible for the success of
Xnews.  It seems to me that you shouldn't have to have reading skills to
understand the concept of threads and although I've never seen Xnews, I
have a great idea about how to make it better - it should have graphical
hippo icons.

As amusing (and appropriate, on this list) as CGF's reply was, this is 
clearly OT for cygwin, so you were correct to not post there. The 
correct place to ask is a forum devoted to Xnews. But my guess is you 
have a 'hide read messages' option turned on somewhere. I could tell you 
where this is in Thunderbird, but not Xnews.

  No way man that's for real!  A friend of a friend of mine hasn't seen his
velvet 'loon pants in several years now and he swears he never leant them to
anyone.

  Spooky!

You forgot "thread was used to make a tutu for a hippo"...

Wow - I had no idea that firefox would take that and put it as the little
14x14 teaser icon next to the URL; that makes it look even more fun!
