One thing that made Usenet's threads work better than those of most discussion sites is that by default it didn't show you messages you'd already read. That combined with the standard practice of quoting relevant parts of a message in one's reply to same (as opposed to sticking the entire message at the bottom of the reply, the bane of modern email) made it pretty easy to stay current with multiple conversations in the same newsgroup.
