glad to see your interest

we went to the separate heading titles to give a hint at what the message says

I think once you get used to it, you'll find it very efficient to use

frankly, that lets us skip opening 100s of messages which do not interest us,
but which had to be waded through when they were listed as simply re: "whatever"

as far as following the thread goes,
the message board automatically indents responses - so you can tell which messages are responses - the msg on the far left is the original, the others tree from there

when you see them run way over to the right, it's a chain of responses to responses to responses - in theory all related to the original topic

another hint:
many times the header line is the whole message
in that case, you'll see the "nt" (no text) at the end of the header
a nice way to leave a quick comment

enjoy & hope it helps
