on a list server such as the one managing this user help list, and also 
in email clients, there are identifiers in each message, apart from the 
subject line of the message.
These identifiers help the server and the client to keep together the 
messages that belong to the same original subject.

When you just hit "reply" to an existing message, and retype the 
subject, these identifiers are still there, and your new message then is 
classified as an anwer to the other previous messages, even if you have 
changed the subject and the content.

That makes it difficult to follow, for people who display list messages 
in "threads", where all related messages come together in a group.
Suddenly, there is a message there that seems related to the previous 
group, but has a different subject and talks of something else.
That is what is called "hijacking an existing thread" (like when someone 
hijacks a plane and re-directs it somewhere else than where the 
passengers wanted to go).

So, to start a new subject, you have to create a totally new message, 
and send it to the list address.
This way, the message gets its own thread, which everyone can then 
follow logically.
Later, you can hit reply to keep answering inside the same new thread.

Ok ?
