Check the headers for such messages, the poster probably posted using a
broken client that destroyed the headers used for threading.  Posting
clients need to keep, and add to, the references headers, and change the
in-reply-to header, for threading to work properly.  Screw that up, as
many crap clients are apt to, and threading is ruined.  Using subject
lines and dates for message sorting is not threading.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
