M V k
Kill all articles with scores below the default score (or below the numeric prefix) (gnus-summary-kill-below).
M e

Mark the current article as expirable (gnus-summary-mark-as-expirable).
M b
Set a bookmark in the current article (gnus-summary-set-bookmark).
M B

M V c
Clear all marks from articles with scores over the default score (or over the numeric prefix) (gnus-summary-clear-above).
M V u

M V m
Prompt for a mark, and mark all articles with scores over the default score (or over the numeric prefix) with this mark (gnus-summary-clear-above).

The gnus-summary-goto-unread variable controls what action should be taken after setting a mark. If non-nil, point will move to the next/previous unread article. If nil, point will just move one line up or down. As a special case, if this variable is never, all the marking commands as well as other commands (like SPACE) will move to the next article, whether it is unread or not. The default is t.
