No you can't. The thread was marked as solved several posts ago after being
hijacked by our
resident hobbyist previously. So just shut up. Thank you.

Pray, how have you marked it solved? Where? This is not a forum, but a mail
list. You can not
tell people to shut up like that. Please be polite.

She marked it solved by changing the subject, And that solved was even
in the subject of the message you replied to, and hence it is in your subject
(But perhaps at the wrong end).

Unfortunately, the thread had exploded into so many subthreads that
people kept replying to, and that perpetuated the un-solved threads.

I suppose some people still read mail un-threaded, and they might
totally miss the fact that subsequent messages in the thread
all carried the [solved] subject.

* I'm going to add another solved to the front of the subject, and
i'm going to shout, so don't be alarmed Carlos, I know how much
that annoys you.

Mailing lists could use a Solved header I think. I remember a mailer
that used to allow one to add an arbitrary X-header to messages, but
that option seems to have disappeared with the semi-standardization of
x- headers. I use to use it so I could find all my submissions in
mailing lists, till list archives started stripping headers.
