Thunderbird annoyance

I use Thunderbird for e-mail & newsgroups, but I find that when I first
access a newsgroup displayed as threads, that it opens and completely
expands a random thread - usually but not always one I haven't posted in.

This can involve endless scrolling through stuff of no interest - any
ideas how to suppress this behavior?

Running Version 1.5 (20051201).

This 'feature' is annoying. My guess is that it is trying to draw your
attention to the oldest thread you have posted in, but it always seems
to be wrong.

I too would like to be able to turn this off, but have never worked out how.

Another Thunderbird feature I'd like to know how to turn on... grouping
by date. I accidentally turned this on once, it turned off when I sorted
by a column, and would like to get it back. It was useful to see
messages from Today, Yesterday, Last week etc.

Sort in date column, then View --> Group --> Group by sort
