From the peanut gallery, and as someone not participating in this thread, I 
have a problem with this.

First of all (but maybe least of all) it is in conflict with the generally 
accepted "rules" for replying to emails.

More relevant is that it causes me to read a lot of extraneous stuff that is 
somehow already resolved, no longer an issue.  I want to easily and quickly 
find the stuff that is still under discussion.

I guess I don't care about this thread, but I hope it doesn't become the 
standard practice, although it sometimes seems that way (especially on debian-
user, which, I know, is not this list).
