Your nickname could be interpreted as something with a sexual connotation:
"heavy tool". At past and present, a famous Internet Troll known as
/flatfish/ was nymshifing to idiotic names like "Barbara Swallows" or
"Bloody Mary" (made-up examples).
When you approach a Linux newsgroup and complain about something that
related to Linux, it is important not to be anonymous or post from a
gateway such as Google Groups. It sets a red flag in many people's minds
and you are unlikely to get an elaborate, useful answers. Clearly, people
misinterpreted your intent.
Which version of KNode are you using and which distribution? Which is your
news server -- the one from which you get all the message downloaded? It
could be malfunctioning. Additionally, can you confirm that you are
viewing messages in the proper order? Are the newest messages appearing at
the top? Is this happening when you subscribe to other newsgroups?
Looking forward to your reply,
