I agree this is a problem. But I don't think Walter recognizes it as a 
serious problem, so I don't know when it will fixed. There are some 
workarounds to view posts in the main D newsgroup, but the web interface 
links should provide this information rather than make a person ask.

Firstly, an alternative web interface is available 
( A disadvantage to 
  the puremagic web interface is that it only has posts since February 
2006. But this deficiency can be worked around, too, since HTML archives 
are available that include the older posts 

But the best way is to read the newsgroup in an actual news reader (such 
as Mozilla Thunderbird or Outlook) to read 

There is more information about the newsgroups at:

(I'm cross-posting this message to the main D group, since this is the 
old D newsgroup and not very many people check it anymore.)
