Whole group. I'm not sure I like GMail's interface.

Looking over another techwriter's shoulder, where he has Outlook open and
is chuckling over this thread, I saw a message from Brian, where he asks:
"What kind of a product would HAVE such a massive dongle collection." I
still haven't located that message in my own Gmail accordioned threaded
inbox. Meanwhile, Google keeps interrupting me to congratulate itself on
how its new look is such an improvement and aren't I happy?
