Hijacked Subject Lines?

 [1/1] from: webmaster::windsweptfarm::com at: 16-Mar-2002 16:23

Dear List, Without launching a massive debate... Could we all attempt to respect the original subject lines when we post. It is certainly part of the nature of conversation to have topics drift and evolve. But when a message subect line persists after the conversation moves on it tends to contaminate the list with disjointed threads. Spawning a new subject line with some sort of backwards reference enables those that have an interest in the old thread to know when are bus stop arrives and lets them disembark on a timely basis. Sincerely, Jim
