1) Please replace your mail client:
a) it is mangling the quoted text by replacing all newlines
by spaces (quoted text should be manually trimmed, not
just compressed vertically);
b) it is failing to send a valid In-Reply-To header (you are
the second current poster with the second problem). This
means it is impossible to thread the messages properly.
2) I'm not convinced you really mean "reference time". Reference time
is the last time that the root server read its underlying reference
clock, which can be hours ago.
(The last time there was a big threading problem was almost two decades
ago, when an amateur "news" network was being gatewayed to usenet.)
