Note also that the subject line on an existing thread can be changed, 
though not everyone's software will track the changes, unfortunately. 
It's always worth taking the time to make sure the subject line really 
does describe the subject of your message - that way people with an 
interest in your problem are much more likely to read it instead of 
skipping over your posts.
