For those who weren't around the last time we cover this (and related)

* how one can configure your mail client to put [ontolog-forum]
traffic away (from your inbox), which would then allow you to 'reply'
to the threads when you want to - see:

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.    (08)

Sadly, one the most popular email clients extant is remiss in
implementing this standard.    (09)

I would wholeheartedly support banning non-compliant mail clients in
this (and all) email forums.    (010)

Yeah. It's a pet peeve of mine...    (011)
