Just as a side comment, one trick I found very helpful in my mail filters is
to treat any message with one of my message-ids in the references as a
personal message as far as mail notifications. This way I get notifications
for any message on a thread following a post of my own.

This is easy in Gnus since the message id has the sending hostname and also
the first few characters has a base64 encoded copy of the unix userid. You
would have to figure out how to recognize message-ids from your MUA.
