When participating in newsgroups it is very usefull to have the option of
viewing only watched threads with unread message or completely new threads.
When I visit a newsgroup I want to see only new messages in interesteing
(watched) threads and/or totaly new threads. I don't want to see new messages
that belong to unwatched threads.
I hope this is clear enough. I think many frequent newsgroup goers will find
this feature usefull, but even if there won't be a specialy made view for this
purpose I think it still should be possible to configure this with a small
effort. Right now there's not even that option - I cannot even filter the view
on the thread level but only on the message level and that's a shame (that's why
I still use OE :( )
