I removed haskell at haskell from the recipients.

It is possible to get to the thread-view of a message from just the bare
message page. For example, if I turn up
<http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.haskell.cafe/8046> in a google
search, which takes me to the article without context, I then click on
the linked subject of the message, which redirects me to
which is the threaded view. It still doesn't seem to allow you to get to
other threads before and after the given thread, but at least you can
view the entire thread of the message you found.

It's definitely not very intuitive.
