Re: Proposed new rule

James,

Warren are you using a threading MUA?

I use Outlook, which *can* thread, but since ruby-talk is such a

high-volume list with a very low signal to noise ratio, I usually just
scan subject lines in a non-threaded view. If everybody else is using
threading and everyone always posts QUIZ-related stuff in the
appropriate thread, then by all means don’t change anything. I’m not
trying to place unreasonable burdens on other people just to make my
life easier. I just thought there were other people besides me having
trouble finding all QUIZ-related posts, and I thought that this would be
a simple, easy solution to the problem.

Everyone can always make use of Google threading, of course:

http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.ruby

Just making sure we’re all aware of that resource.
