Two headers usually hidden from user's view and therefore few think to delete 
them. Most find it easier to address a new email than to hunt down and delete 
everything from a reply.

Is my understanding Gmail's online email client and possibly AOL's will 
automatically delete those headers from a reply if the Subject is sufficiently 

In-Reply-To contains the message-id of the prior message in the thread.

Sometimes a References header is used in place of or in addition to In-Reply-To 
and differs only in that it may contain multiple message-id's which covers for 
the situation where the prior message may not have arrived yet but some of the 
others have.

Graham's first post to this "thread" contained:

And thats why it threaded elsewhere rather than start its own.

Its not a life-threatening deal, but it is one of those things that separate 
quality technical lists from the riff-raff. The result is a higher quality list 

If we don't politely point this out now and then nobody will know and this 
wisdom will be lost as it already is on many other lists.

I think Graham handled it very well.
