Very, very old. You should better upgrade to Gnus 5.10.8 or better
upgrade Emacs to version 21.4 (several years old stable) or 22 (in

Scoring on followup. Go on an article of the person and press `L F'
or `L f s p'. See the manual for more details:
,----[ (info "(gnus)Summary Score Commands") ]

| 1. The first key is either `I' (upper case i) for increasing the score
| or `L' for lowering the score.
| 2. The second key says what header you want to score on. The
| following keys are available:
| Score on followups--this matches the author name, and adds
| scores to the followups to this author. (Using this key
| leads to the creation of `ADAPT' files.)

| a R' is the same as `I a r t'.
