Interesting how things change.  The complaint I am used to seeing 
regarding  changing the subject line/content is that it does not start a 
new thread for people using readers that support proper 
threading,thereby hijacking the thread.

A long time ago when I first found this group I was told by a long time 
user that indicating a resolution was a good way to let someone reading 
an archive in the future know that the thread was worth reading.

However, if the norms of the group have changed I can certainly adapt.
