O'Reilly Guidelines for group discussion.  It's so old, that they are
difficult to find anymore (circa late '80s/early '90s).

It works brilliantly when your mail (SMTP) or news (NNTP) reader tracks
via 30+ year old Message-ID.  That way you can thread dozens or even
hundreds of follow-ups, even if the topic changes, while still allowing
others to not have to read through dozens before getting to it.

It not only tries to rely on subject, but it does it rather

subject, but it doesn't.

Ask Google to either thread by Message-ID or 

I receive more thanks from people who find my stuff buried in Google
searches than I receive complaints from GMail users, so I continue to

clients (be it Yahoo/Web or Evolution) honor Message-ID.  E.g.,
