This reply will doubtless be the same. It's because I subscribe to
the nomail version of the list and have to compose replies by
quoting and pasting bits and bobs into a new message from the
responses I read via the RSS feeds and the copies on the web.

Too bad.

You should subscribe at least for the period you are participating in
a thread.

When I reply, sometimes it works and puts the message in the right
place in the thread, other times it adds a new reply out of
context, and once or twice my replies have vanished into thin air.
What criteria is used to determine which thread a message belongs
to, i.e. is there something I can paste in to ensure it goes in the
right place?

The criteria is that you do not hit replay on posts, as simple as
that. That action creates two headers linking to the message-id of the
previous posts, and others.

Message-ID: <....>
References: <....>
In-Reply-To: <....>

It's not ideal but I use the nomail version since I want to monitor
a few lists, most of which I never or very rarely post to, so I
skim the subject lines from time to time but don't want hundreds of
extra emails in my inbox. There's been a flurry of recent postings
from me to this group because every time I try to fix one problem I
run into a new one :(

Then you can access the list through one of those services offering
nntp<->mail gateway. Some pople here use it, I dont remember the name.
