moderated Re: How on earth does thread a topic?


One argument against sucking in similar subject lines without a "Re:".

On another site that did associate threads like this, in a family-only group, one person had the habit of using the subject line "Family Update" on all their announcement messages, even though they had nothing to do with other "Family Update" messages. They all got swept into the same thread, which was annoying.

I can imagine similar groups where someone always titles their messages "Today's quote" or "Office Hours" or "Lunch menu".

So it sort of depends on which is more prevalent: Broken mail clients, or people who don't choose subject lines well.
