Well first of all, it is bad manners to hijack threads. You may not have
done it intentionally, I see: (User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1;
WOW64; rv:17.0) Gecko/17.0 Thunderbird/17.0) in the headers of your
email. IOW, you are fighting windows *AND* trying to send a message to a
mailing list. :)

Hijacking a thread is when you change the subject of an existing mail,
in this case Lina's post with subject: "How to deal the broken links."

If you look at:
you can clearly see what has happened. You'll notice that Lina's post
got no responses while yours did. :(

Do you recollect doing this? I'm guessing you did this so that you
didn't have to remember the address of the debian-user mailing list.

Unless, you are replying to an existing message, in this case Lina's
post with subject: "How to deal the broken links." you *** MUST ***
start a completely new message. Put debian-user@lists.debian.org in your
address book. There should be an option if you click on address book, to
send message to this contact.

This is not the first time:

Yep, look at:

So please, can we get this sorted before you do it again?

Do you understand what I am trying to say?
