Topic: Subject lines and hijacking - was Re: +(no subject) (3 msgs / 66 lines)
1) From: Brian Kamnetz
Though the post below was not directed at me, I wish to apologize
along similar lines. After the fact the other day I noticed  that I
had hijacked a thread about something else into discussion of Master
heat guns. I try to be careful about subject lines, but spaced that
one out.
Along the same lines, when I reply I try to remember to delete
everything in the original email that is not pertinent to my response,
and most often do that, but sometimes I space that out too. In fact, I
think I did that just a minute ago. If so, Sorry.

I want to apologize too, but for my errant spelling.  And sometimes I burnt
he toast too.  Last week I almost cut someone off on the freeway...  And
then there are the bean burritos.
Just take it from me, I am truly sorry...
CMon folks, it's a coffee list, with reasonable conversation...  And
sometimes we end up in a chat...
That's really OK...

No skin off my back. But, thought I would add that if you hit replay on 
an email, it passes along the headers which keep track of what 
conversation it is a response to, even if you delete out everything you 
see. To start a new thread, you have to start with a fresh email to the 
list and not reply to someone else's.
In Thunderbird which I use, it is as simple as right-clicking on the 
home roast list address in any email and selecting "Compose mail to..." 
to start a new thread.
But we all make mistakes from time to time, no one should be roasted for 
it. Save that for the coffee beans. :)
