Re: www.debian.org down? -- wrong thread

Oops, my mistake. I'm too lazy to type debian-user@lists.debian.org (or
put it in my addressbook) so I tend to grab an existing message, hit
reply (eh, I mean Reply-to-list :-), remove the existing subject and
content and type a new message.  Guess there is something in the headers
that ties it to the thread, I always assumed threading was done based on
the subject.

Will try to be less lazy next time :-)
