That way when a thread starts to wander people can be politely invited to
move it to the parallel list and nobody needs to have a blood pressure
It also gives an outlet for the more socially inclined to meet around a
common interest - promoting the fraternity of Linux users [all flavors].
I've seen what is going on here happen numerous times over the years.  It is
the internet equivalent of a head cold - things get all stuffed up, you feel
hot and bothered, and nothing seems to help [except Nyquil (tm) and lots of
rest] - no matter what you do nothing helps and it goes away in about two
Shooting a mailing list in the head makes the problem go away but is a
really drastic solution for something that is temporary in nature.

account for less than 1% of the 30,000.  There are three times as many
medical mistake deaths in the US than there are accidental gun deaths.
Perhaps we need safety locks on doctors and nurses?
