GG doesn't thread by the subject line, it threads by the Message-Id: header.

OK, so what is different about the "Message-Id: header" on the three threads that are giving GG'ers such recent troubles?
Re: OT: Guns in America Re: OT - more Trump Re: OT Idiot lights-out drivers
What is happening within the "Message-Id: header" that splits those posts out into varying numbers of smaller "threads" (1,2,5,9, etc.)?
Here's an excerpt from the thread list page, The (number) in parenthesis is the number of posts in that "thread" that I have not read, the number without the () is the number of total posts in that "thread".
The lines without any () simply means that I clicked on the subject line on the thread list page so GG assumes I read every post in that "thread". e.g. the 3rd and 4th ones down.

Based on the list above, I find it hard to believe there are that many subject line changes within the Guns in America thread. Are posters really changing the subject line every minute or two?

IDK what's going on, but it is interesting that yesterday was the worst day ever and it was right after you brought up your issue. Not implying I blame you, just that it looks like one of the trolls could be doing it deliberately.

I've got another weird thing happening, separate from this issue.
In the thread "Square D electrical panel question" which is currently 14 GG pages long, it always opens to my 2nd post on the first page, the post where I posted the long link to a forum where Main Disconnects vs. Service Disconnects were discussed. I then have to pull down the page menu to go the last page. It doesn't matter which device I use, as long as I am logged in, the link for that GG thread take me to that post.
Strange.

I've seen the same thing happen, not sure if it was that thread, but definitely on some of the threads, instead of going to the unread, new posts it opens on some much earlier page. And even as new posts are added, it stays stuck on always opening to that one early page.

Hey trader_4,
Any chance you could send me an email so I can ask you a direct question related to GG...something I don't want to ask in the ng? The email attached to my GG account should work. It's a spam-receptacle, but I can check it when I need to.
Just let me know if you do or not (I'll understand either way.)

I think you folks are over stating the spam thing. Most of the spam I get is from companies that I do business with. I imagine I get a little from usenet but it is not that oppressive.

I changed ISPs a few months ago, and decided to put a real one in my Usenet headers. So far, not a single spam.
Just a few years ago, email addresses left in the clear like that would always result in a small stream of new spam sources. But I think that nowadays the spammers don't consider there to be enough Usenet users with unhidden addresses in their headers to make it worth their while.

I'm not sure what your point is. I didn't say anything about an over abundance of spam from usenet. I merely mentioned that the email I use for GG is a spam receptacle - in general.
Trust me, it gets a lot of spam from various sources but that's why it exists. I use to register for just about any site/forum that requires a "confirmation email" be sent. For those sites that I trust, I can always change the email to any of my (many) others.

And yesterday it was really, really bad, with many new separate threads showing up in GG. Today, it's better, less of them, but still there.

I'm on GG and I have seen what you are talking about, but only on this news group.
GG is not so bad. GG fell into disfavor deservedly a few years ago becasue they were the source of tons of spam. But they seemed to have resolved that.
I find GG very handy.

The original "Guns in America" thread on GG has exactly 1000 posts in it. I wonder if Google's software has gone a little nuts over that number, and can't figure out where to put the subsequent posts.
