Actually, that's not a correct statement. At least Liam and Basil
are on a wrong track.

But, if you have a look, he didn't start a new thread! The subject
line is supposed to be a brief "overview" of what's in the mail.
If the topic (or, maybe we might even call it "subject") changes,
it's correct to change the subject contents.
What confuses me - why this "hate"? He's not doing anything
wrong! On the contrary, he's completely right!
