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

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.
