Testing Marking Cross-posts as read in SeaMonkey

Daniel-2
I do a fair bit of reading of posts on UseNet which are often
cross-posted, but the cross-posts are not getting marked as read.

I know this did function, long ago, in Netscape Navigator, got broken
(was that in Mozilla Suite??) and still doesn't work in SeaMonkey and, I
guess, in Thunderbird.

So I'm cross-posting this to three groups on the news.mozilla.org server
so I can have a bit of a look ... and play!!

The way I figure, there must be information in the message headers which
is common to all the cross-posts but different to any other posts in any
of the mentioned groups.

If you're not interested, please killfile this thread in the three news
groups.

Yes: the Message-ID.

That of your initial message is <[hidden email]>

This is bug #43278, reported 18 years ago.  The problem is in the
MailNews Core component, whiich means it affects both SeaMonkey and
Thunderbird.  This worked in Netscape Communicator 4, which means that
this could be fixed.

See <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=43278>.

First you say you do, and then you don't.
And then you say you will, but then won't.
You're undecided now, so what're you goin' to do?

does not understand "commitment", whether it is about
policy or marriage.

 From that page:

- Importance: major
- Status: NEW
- Reported: 18 years ago (as you said)
- Modified: a year ago

An opinion: it is just silly to only write a sentence about when things
were written, instead of saying the actual date. A year ago may be a
year and 11 months ago - in other words, a year ago may be in 2016! 18
years ago may be in the first half of 1999!
