I simply have my mail reader toss all TECHWR-L posts into their own
folder, and sort them first according to subject, then in ascending date
order. This then groups everything by subject from oldest to newest.

More likely being overly presumptuous that everyone is using the same
reader or even the same method to access the list as you. You're
apparently using a newsreader to pickup the USENET format. Some people
receive the list in digest form. Most of us receive it as a email list,
in which case the Post and Follow-up options are not applicable. Not all
newsreaders support these functions or implement them in the same way,
