You deliberately started a new thread quoting a huge chunk of the old
thread?  That's curious behaviour.

Sorry, I think I was too terse.

This list covers a lot of different topics.  This particular issue doesn't
effect me no matter how it's resolved.

It seems a lot more polite to keep conversations properly threaded so
people can dismiss what they've already classified as unimportant (to
them) a little more quickly.

It also helps when looking through the archives to be able to see the
whole message a chunk of text was quoted from, instead of having to hunt
for it.
