View profile is shortened and the messages themselves are shortened.
Sometimes you cannot see the header.

I suppose Google is trying to shift the format so as to make room for
advertisement. But in the Old Google, ads are much easier to see.

David, try this and tell me what your computer does.

Go to sci.math in New Google Newsgroups. From there, try to go to
sci.physics and then try to go to sci.physics.electromag. When I do
that, I get "Not Found , Error 404"

Perhaps Google as only found moderators for sci.math, and sci.chem and
where no-one wants to moderate they do not have that newsgroup.
