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.
