No! Do NOT just change the subject. That is not the same thing as
starting a new thread. When you just change the subject threaded email
clients add your "new subjected message" to the old thread. It is just
like not changing the subject, only worse. I can only suppose that
Matthew uses a non-threading email client, has threading disabled, or
uses an email client that incorrectly (as per the spec) threads on
subject. Yes, I know that Gmail threads on subject but that is against
the spec.

Matthew, I am disappointed and will soon plunk your messages if you
keep that up! :)
