I apologize as you pointed out that you're a basic linux user. What I'm
talking about is that each email message to a list includes a header
that reads something like:
References: <47964f52.0ec5100a.6649.32ba at mx.google.com>
<7165acc0801221309x3655e574s4c7ace2229d10c40 at mail.gmail.com>
In-Reply-To: <7165acc0801221309x3655e574s4c7ace2229d10c40 at mail.gmail.com>
These are how most conforming mail clients (read: email programs like
Thunderbird or Outlook Express) identify threads. Thus, even though you
changed the subject, you were responding to the same thread.
If you want to verify this "header business", hit Ctrl+U when you're
reading a list message, and you'll see the complete and unprocessed
dialog that Thunderbird hides from you in normal view.
