If quoting of messages was better managed it would be easier to follow
things. The p.s. was part of the original thread so not just a 'random
email' ...

The problem is that just as everybody has their own opinions over OSM
data, they also have different ways of replying to emails. Not helped by
each client application enforcing it's own preferences. Some clients
will be listing the change of subject as separate thread, some not, and
so the mess goes on.

Sometimes I can hit 'reply to list' and just get the list address other
times it's 'reply all' and find the list as a 'cc' so it's not the list
which has a problem ... it's the whole process :(
