Google Groups Changes?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I'm probably late with this, but I can't seem to find any pertinent
In the fairly recent past, the way Google Groups works seems to have been
changed, reducing the utility from very good to almost nil.
I used to be able to enter a search phrase like "Visual Studio 2003
converter" and get lots of useful and pertinent hits. I also used to be able
to select either a single article containing the hit or view the entire
thread (with article tree for selecting from within the thread).
Now, it seems that I get very little in the way of useful results and when a
"hit" is selected, I get a badly formatted run-on conglomeration of what
looks like the entire thread run together. Is/was there some information
provided that will return Google Groups to it's former usefulness?

Any help/suggestions/comments greatly appreciated!
