Many people use mail clients that don't do any sort of threading to follow 
what's going on on this list; I use Eudora, personally, when in Windows, 
and the Mozilla mail client when I'm in Linux.  It was, quite literally, 
years before someone finally pointed out to me that in a mail reader or a 
news reader that supports threading, if I start a new thread I shouldn't 
reply to an old thread with a new subject line.  I'm now very careful to 
follow that procedure.  In my mail client, it makes no difference, but I 
know it affects other readers.

That's just why it happens; because not everyone uses a newsreader to read 
this newsgroup, so many people don't even realize what's happening.
