in thread Automatic Re-ing with numbers

I'm used to it from mailing lists and such.
Hmm? Mails tend to have a single "Re:" with no indication of depth. All of the mailers I've ever used keep it that way, and therefor so do the mailing lists. I can hardly find any "Re: Re:" mails in my mboxes and none with "Re: Re: Re:" or more.

Makeshifts last the longest.

    Of course you are right. I just seem to be living in the past. I did a little zgrep'ing on my archives and found many more occurences of multiple "re"s from 1996 then in more recent years. And, it was worse; there were all sorts of ugly combos of "Re" and "RE" and even a couple with "re".

    *shrug* So, those long strings of "Re"s look rather normal to me. What can I say?
