M V k
Kill all articles with scores below the default score (or below the numeric prefix) (gnus-summary-kill-below).
M e
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
Remove the bookmark from the current article (gnus-summary-remove-bookmark).
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 <SPC>) will move to the next article, whether it is unread or not. The default is t.
