You are not the first one I hear complaining of a similar problem, but I
don't know the answer.

But I was going to mention some other thing: You are hijacking threads,
and because of that, your emails get sorted amongst those of last month.
It makes more dificult for people to answer your questions.
Please, don't hijack.

This is what we see:

If you don't know what I'm talking about, it is on this list FAQ:
