I admit I haven't thought it through as much as I should, I just get
so tired of finally finding a thread with the exact problem I am
having, following it carefully and then:
It disappears !
Because the OP lost interest in posting anything once he got things
I think as long as you are replying to a message you can change the
subject and keep the threading, but a lot depends on what MUA you are
using. Some of the web-based mail clients really suck.
Then there are the postings with a subject of "digest" or the like,
very few mailers can actually properly burst a digest and preserve
the threading (can any of them ?).
The real answer is of course the WiKi, and once you find an answer
you should find a way to put it into that, but it takes time and
that's something we all have limited amounts of.
As I said, I am criticizing myself as much as anyone else here, I am
at least as bad at these things as others are.
But we have to start somewhere, and identifying the problem(s) is a
good start at least.
