I don’t understand his question, nor your answer.
Aren’t the NNTP group names ‘the same’ as the Web Forum names ?
Didn’t someone allready post an example of Forum names, with the NNTP group
names beside them, to show how difficult it was to miss the link?
Or are you talking about something completely different? In that case, what
am I missing?

Still hoping I didn’t miss some important point: we know where the thread is
beeing moved to. The message announcing it shows that.
What would be very usefull, in order to find the original root of a thread,
would be to indicate where it was moved from.
Maybe add it to the subject:
Subject: I’m allergic to KDE 4! (moved here from … )
Or maybe create a first - fake - post in the destination group. Just use the
original Subject line, but let the body say:
This thread was moved here from (old forum) by (moderator) on (date).
