If you are anything like me, I absolutely hate typing on mobile devices
like phones or tablets - it's just to frustrating and slow. So I only
use the web interface to my NNTP server to read posts, if I really must
or am bored somewhere out and about. But none of those posts are ever
that urgent for me to reply immediately.

Then when I get back to my PC, which has a decent keyboard and screen,
then I reply using my normal news client (Thunderbird or XanaNews).

Because I don't really use the web interface often, the unread list
grows relatively quickly. The web interface has a "catch up" feature to
help with that. I can quickly scan the list of messages to see what I
read last, then simply use the Catch Up feature to mark everything up to
that message number as read.
