But without that "killer-code" its almost impossible to read emails
generated in google-groups in your gmail-inbox as they have a light
background and an almost light text if you're using a theme with a black
or grey background.

I don't understand exactly what the code does or how it works, but
having it in my .gnus has made the unintelligible gmail emails
intelligible!

And that’s all I'm going to say on it :)
