Conversely, correspondents must refrain from using "reply" to start new 
topics (referred to as "thread hijacking" in some circles). Furthermore 
their email client (the MUA) must support the standard In-Reply-To 
header, lest others' mail clients be forced to use the unreliable 
method of constructing threads based on the content of the Subject 
header.    (03)

Sadly, one the most popular email clients extant is remiss in 
implementing this standard.    (04)

I would wholeheartedly support banning non-compliant mail clients in 
this (and all) email forums.    (05)

Yeah. It's a pet peeve of mine...    (06)
