Can I get to throw a tomato?! Please!... Just joking:)

Anyway - what you say here might be true for you. Maybe not only for you, but 
for some more people out there, as you say. But here you also have a mailing 
list that at least has to be organized in terms of structure. Imagine someone 
searching through the archives and the thread that answers his/hers question 
is not actually a thread but a mere reply to something completely irrelevant 
to the subject?

Now if this was a forum (oh, I am glad it is not), a moderator could easily 
move the thread. But that is not the case with a mailing list. So the only 
way to cope with the potential problem is to encourage people to hit the 
right button.

Besides - sorting by name will get you nowhere.. dates get messed up and you 
are welcome to try to find a mail sent esterday in that pile. So don't 
question the intuitiveness of threads (many thanks to KMail for the great 
support). At least not when you are not the only person affected...

Blade hails you...

In my world
Love is for poets
Never the famous balcony scene
Just a dying faith
On the heaven's gate
