Does anyone know of a usenet newsreader that lets you sort by replies to
just your own posts? so instead of wading thru lots of posts looking for
replies to yours, you can easily find them. thanks,

I use Agent8 and it's easy to sort on "Author" column to group various
posters.

But that doesnt let you see who has replied to your own posts.

Some news readers do allow you to highlight your own posts using
the filter system and then it isnt hard to see who has replied to those.
Can't remember which ones do that tho.

I just click TBird to show threads, then track down the threads to see
who's replied to what.

** When you are the OP - they all do just that.

** You need to read ( or scan) all replies in a thread, following the context is important.

Thunderbird.

BetterBird - which is an attempt to fix at least some of the bugs in TB,
but there are so very, very many.

Both allow you to create a custom "View:" filter with "From:" contains
"xyz".

You're using News.Individual.Net as your news server. NIN allows you
to add a 'ID-MYUSERID' tag in the 'Message-ID:' header of your posts [1].

As far as I know, Thunderbird - your newsreader - allows you to score
on that header.

In my newsreader (tin), I score on messages where my tag is in the
last message-id of the 'References:' header, i.e. messages which are a
response to one of my posts.

N.B. I do not know if Thunderbird allows you to generate your own
message-ids, which is needed for the first step. If not, you'll need a
different newsreader or a proxy between your newsreader and the NIN news
server. (I use Hamster for that purpose.)

How topical. My fabulous, but ancient and decidely fragile, 40tude Dialog
crashed (again) this morning. Been using it last century, which was also
when it was last updated, so I won't recommend it, which is a shame as it'd
satisfy your requirements and then some. As Dialog does, you could use a
reader that 'scores' every poster you choose, eg, 'felix = 10', then all
your posts stick out like dogs. Or you can simply colour your posts
differently to the rest.

Suspecting that the end of Dialog is near. Very near.

mutt can do it by using a positive killfile rule on references header
against a distinctive message-id domain name.

It was. RIP Dialog.

Anyhoo, am trying Pan. A Dialog lookalike but missing a couple of
Fortitude options.

Thunderbird has a "between" column which might achieve that for you ...
but it also has a hierarchy view -- but I am not certain if any of those
will meet your need as I typically don't use either feature.
