Q11: How do I start a brand-new thread of articles?

A:  On UNIX systems, the typical method is to use the "postnews" or "Pnews"
    command to the shell.  These days, it is _particularly_ important to
    start a new thread of articles when you start a new subject, rather
    than just following up an existing article and changing the subject.
    This is because threaded newsreaders depend on article-id's to sort
    articles, and they can't do this properly if one doesn't start new
    threads properly.

    If you wish to create a posting to one of the moderated rec.aviation
    groups (.announce or .stories), most UNIX posting software will allow
    you to enter the post in the normal manner; that post will then be
    mailed to the group moderator for approval.  If you are on a non-UNIX
    system, simply mail your article to rec-aviation-announce@uunet.uu.net
    or rec-aviation-stories@uunet.uu.net.
