It is easier for sure.
 (... and Google was set up to do it that way ....)
 Plus there is a back-up in the Ubuntu-users archive .....

It does not work for me because of limited time (and, more-and-more:
limited memory, getting old).
I know I would not get back to the server to find out about 'Possible
to save a complete thread?' (see subj of this msg). Not to mention that
I forgot (the existence of it).

But when browsing the 'myLinux' folder, I see a clearly marked folder.

I save what I need for my Linux learning. Topics that I like to learn
about (or really NEED, or that are just plain interesting).
I save by topic, marked my own way, assisting my limited (poor) memory.

It makes VERY interesting reading (for me).
As it is much less than 1/1,000,000 of the volume on the server, I
actually get back to reading these messages.
Especially in times of trouble/need ....

This is a lot more practical for me.

All this material is backed-up.
My system can go bad tonight, with no substantial loss tomorrow.
 I can skip all threads on rescue subjects.
 (just one of many subjects that I can ignore).
 That helps me to concentrate on core (MY-Linux-core) subjects.

I think I am making Linux progress in my limited time and in a pleasant
way. Just one tiny step at a time.

The Ubuntu-users list is a valuable addition to all the above.
 THANKS to all on the list.
And (again) special Thanks Andrew Farris for his well-thought-out answer.
