There seems to be a real wealth of knowledge on PerlMonks.

I'm quite a new user... and find the interface for reading and posting in threads is difficult to follow. After just scanning briefly thru some of the setup stuff, I saw no section devoted to how threads are presented.

Hopefully I'm just blind to seeing how to set things up in some way I can follow better. If so I hope some kind Monk will steer me toward the relevant information.

Is it possible to connect with the various forums, thru NNTP? And use them like regular usenet is setup?

Is it possible, thru personal settings or whatever to get my group reading interface to resemble the one available on gmane. With Frames and threading so the groups appear in the tried and venerable style of usenet
