I guess this is a News-only feature.
When reading news, I sometimes would like to be able to kill a thread without 
having to load any of the messages from it.  This action is not available from 
the context menu of the message.

I think a relatively clean shortcut to get to this point would be to shift+click 
in the Junk column -- indicating a sort of "This thread is junk" (in the sense 
of ignorable, not in the sense of should be added to the Bayesian training).

I can anticipate an argument against: one UI feature is suddenly taking on two 
different meanings.  In its defense, this is a kind of expert-only functionality 
I'm looking for anyway, and the user action is not one that is likely to be 
experimented with by a novice user (and so unlikely to confuse).

imho, this is also a valid use case for threads on mailing lists.

I don't think we would do this, nor would we want to overload the meaning of Junk.

But this can be effectively done with Ignore thread in the context menu
