I think I haven't saw the bug in the list because it's due to the non-existant subscribing ability but I think the interface should ask confirmation for subscribing a Wrong newsgroup like alt. int the tree (it knows that's not in the D/L list) or disable the subscribe button when highlighting such a group name and give another field for subscribing non-listed groups.
Confirming, marking as enhancement. You can actually subscribe to folders like alt. or comp. , press OK and it appears in the subscribed list. I guess we shouldn't allow users to subscribe to such folders. Build 2000111004 win32. Fabian.
