Oh, but there is!

You used your mail client's "Reply" function then edited the Subject.
This is a big no-no, since to subscribers with good email clients
(those that do topic threads) your reply appears to be a part of the
thread containing the message you chose to reply to, which it is not.

Please create a genuine new message to start a new topic thread.

Also, a Reply-To header is not advised. We strongly prefer to keep all
mail on the list, and a Reply-To header drawing responses back to you
thwarts that policy.
