display say
http://www.digitalmars.com/webnews/newsgroups.php?art_group=digitalmars.D&article_id=47297
the threaded answers are linked to digitalmars.D.announce not  digitalmars.D
which breaks the link of course.

I've had similar problems occur sporadically. It seems to be some kind of bug in Web-News. I haven't made any attempt to correct it, but I suspect it has to do with cookies or some sort of session information. I think the problem is that I refreshed one newsgroup, then I clicked a message from another newsgroup (in another tab). And for whatever reason, it gives be links for the newsgroup that I had refreshed more recently. It's annoying, but pnews doesn't give me any kind of threaded view, so Web-News is still an improvement. And I can quickly edit the URL to give me the right link.

Agreed, the threaded view is still an improvement. I can live with this bug PS: sorry for posting on D.announce, I made a mistake.
