This is the most ill behaved newsgroup I have ever encountered. It
totally crashes Thunderbird.

Newsgroups do not cause computer crashes.
Perhaps the problem lies somewhere between
the chair and the keyboard.

I always like reading Carey Frisch's "... problem lies somewhere between the chair and the keyboard" remark. However, I am surprised she did not attack Thunderbird. :)

The Thunderbird crashes may be a result of a corrupted summary file. Delete the offending summary file (*.msf) when Thunderbird is not running and this may correct the Thunderbird crash.

Read carefully I did not say computer crash. I said it crashed Thunderbird.

Rick;
How are you accessing that newsgroup different than this newsgroup?
I have not heard of problems such at that with a specific newsgroup.

Exactly the same way. It if you right click it and then click "mark
newsgroup read" I got a Send error pop up and another window with a lot
of other information that I did not save. It occurred to me that
perhaps I needed to be running it in a 64 bit operating system. I'll
try it in Linux and see what happens.

Rick;
The operating system does not matter, I am reading that group on 32 bit
Windows XP.

Delete the 64 bit newsgroup.
In OE, the messages still remain until OE is also closed so be sure the
messages are also deleted.
Reboot the computer and try the newsgroup again.

Have a friend that uses the same newsreader as you subscribe to the 64 bit
newsgroup and see what they experience.
