Occasionally in Usenet forums (possible with mailing lists as well), some portions of a thread will degenerate into attack/counterattack responses, often delving deep into a thread, so deep that the subject line scrolls off of the screen. Since many of these deep conversations are spammy or tangential to the topic at hand, a feature is needed to either split off the threads or implement a sub-thread ignore. However, other portions of the thread are still relevant and should not be ignored.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Subscribe to the forum.
2. Download messages from the last few months or the last ~ 2 thousand messages.
3. Look at the thread entitled "Java and avoiding software piracy?" or "Java 7 Features", especially replies from "Twisted"
Actual Results:  
Lots and lots of annoying attack/counterattack posts cluttering up my view and new message counts.

Expected Results:  
The key posts would be marked as "Ignore subthread" and those posts would be treated as ignored.
