Hi All

this is your friendly and completely non-automatic netiquette reminder:

Please remember to _not_ use the "Reply" button when starting a new thread. 
Instead use the "New Message" button, so that your mail does not 
accidentally refer to some other mail in a completely unrelated discussion.

Thanks
Ben

Background: Many email clients use (usually hidden) header fields 
(References: or In-Reply-To:) in emails to properly display discussion 
threads. Merely changing the subject field does _not_ delete these other 
hidden fields, so your message will still be displayed as an answer to 
whatever mail your client had in focus the moment you hit "Reply".
