Just a comment (or two); not a complaint or anything vicious. I hit
the "<R>eply" option on my reader and it does not put the "RE:" in. I
will agree with not changing the subject to reply to a thread. Ideally
a new thread should have a new subject as makes it easier for the
original query to be followed separately

Agreed, except for the "RE:" part. My reader will allow me to retain
the original poster's name in the TO: field; not sure if that field is
retained throughout the distribution channels. I also generally use
the poster's name in the salutation.
