Subject RE: threading Re: Dissatisfaction amongst the community admins, moderators and volunteers
Date Mon, 05 Sep 2011 16:34:48 GMT

I don't generally have any way of knowing what does and does not influence threading.  I don't
have threading in my mail client and I don't use an alternative, such as a newsgroup service,
so it is difficult to know how I do or don't do disturbs threading.

I am told that touching the subject will break threading, so I don't do that as much as I
would like to when we have drifted considerably from some non-specific subject, like this
one has.  I can't even add or restore a category without objection.

I also don't normally see the SMTP headers, although I can find them with moderate effort.
 I can't influence the outgoing headers though.

What may have happened is I replied to my own copy rather than the one from the list.  I usually
delete my own copy as soon as one from the list appears, and that might matter.

There are a couple of other things I should watch out for as well.  I think if I re-open a
post in my Outbox to correct something, that might lose the reply thread too.  Also, if I
had to save a draft for continuing later, that might lose the reply thread.  I don't know.

Generally, it is very difficult to honor an etiquette the effects of which are invisible to
me.  For me, the list arrives chronologically in a separate folder that I filter it to and
that is all that I know about it.

I do my best.  

 - Dennis

Dennis, some of your recent replies (including the one I'm replying to)
break threading (at least in Mutt), could you look into that please?

(The mails appear in the same thread, as a new reply to the first post
of the thread.)
