An old fart would know that Subject:-line-based threading would have
attracted criticism both then and now :-)

If this list were to work with Subject:-line based threading all I would
need to do would be to change the subject line to something from a

What utter balderdash!

And heck, some subject lines such as "members poll" get re-used over
the years for quite different matters.

If I need to read by subject line regardless of thread I can set up a
query to sort like that.
