Re: Thread Stealing [was Installing MP3 for Amarok? How?]




If your message is *not* a reply to someone else's, then do NOT use the
reply feature of your mail client.  Create a "new" message.  On some
clients you can do so simply by clicking on the "To" address of an
existing message, to create a new message to that address.  On others,
you'll have to create a new message and add the right to address to the
"To: field.  For those, you can make life easier for yourself by adding
the mailing list's address to your address book.

Very nice summary.

This behaviour is more often referred to as "Thread Hijacking" - It even has its own wikipedia entry

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thread_hijacking

There seems to be a lot of this going around at the moment...
