They are realistic about people's use of email.  They hit
reply/reply-all to reply to the sender/group, not necessarily
to the content of the previous message, and they change
the subject line when it isn't relevant and they are changing
the topic.  Please resume this argument when you have taught
the rest of the world the value of the headers they can't
see and some way to get the address list from a message
without making an irrelevant In-Repy-To:.
