Can Pan sort threads by date of most recent post?
 
When I sort threads by date in Pan, it sorts them by their oldest posts,
that is, the first post made in the thread. Is it possible to get it to
sort threads by their most recent post, so I get the currently most
active threads near the top of the list?

If Pan won't do this, should I be using some other newsreader instead?

The present behaviour would seem to encourage people to start new threads
to get attention when an existing thread would provide better context.

Mmm... you mean something like Thunderbird/Icedove or Evolution do?

If my memory serves me well, these put the latest updated thread at the
top, regardless the date of original posting. I don't think this can be
customized in Pan but I'm using an old version (0.132), so this may have
changed :-?

Thunderbird/Icedove or Evo ;-P

Mmm, I prefer the Pan way... I find it a more logical approach (or maybe
is that I finally got accustomed to it). Anyway, I think that this should
be fully configurable by the user.
