My newsreader supports threading, but the first message I see in this 
thread is from Devan L. I didn't notice the "Re:" and assumed his post 
was half in the subject line and half in the body.

Sometimes I only download the 100 most recent posts, so I don't see the 
original (or referred-to) post. Other times the threading doesn't work 
properly, splitting conversations or using the wrong level of 
indentation. Also, this is both a newsgroup and a mailing list, and that 
has adverse effects on threading as well.

So, please quote. =)
