Well then, it must have been the first thing I ever changed on Knode, since
I don't ever remember doing so, and since I do not recall it being
displayed any differently, ever, on my machine. Possible. But that still
wouldn't explain WHY the default is set differently than Kmail, which uses
screen space much more effectively--unless most users actually subscribed
to fif* or more newsgroups, in which case the point might be arguable.
