moderated Re: How on earth does thread a topic?


Hi All,

I've just changed the threading algorithm. Here it is:

If a message has threading information, use that. (same as before)
If a message does not have threading information:
- If it's a web post, assume it's the start of a new thread
- If the subject starts with Re:, look for a matching subject within the last 30 days
- If the subject does not start with Re:, look for a matching subject within the last 2 days

Please let me know if it helps.

Suddenly, today, the member's posts are threading correctly, even without "Re:"

The message activity log shows that he (and others) "Sent message Lysine" (instead of "Sent message Re: Lysine"). Yesterday, such posts were creating their own threads instead of threading under "Lysine." Today they are threading correctly.

I will try to get a better grip on this today and summarize it at the end of the day for Mark via support (and cc Shal). I'll also include whatever message headers seem relevant.

Messages are the sole opinion of the author. Especially the fishy ones.
