Well, when I see something like this:

   [vox] Help, my winmodem doesn't work

followed by 2 dozen followups, since I don't care about or use even
NON-Win modems, I can easily delete the entire thread by hitting [Esc] [D]

Switching to a threaded mail client (in my case, switching from elm to mutt)
has helped TREMENDOUSLY.  I can keep track of ancient correspondences
in my "lugod" folder, clip and trim and skim through the countless mailing
lists I'm subscribed to, and so forth.
