See, it just goes to show - after my own initial shock at seeing
people's messages about Charles swerve off in all directions under the
same header, I've been watching with great pleasure as more messages on
many and various topics are added under the "Charles Hankel RIP"
subject-line (Google has them at 256 this morning) and was thinking to
myself that it would be a fitting Umratic tribute/memorial to Chankel if
threads and messages just carried on being added under that header until
it achieved the longest thread ever status.
Maybe we could compromise by keeping "Charles Hankel RIP" as the header
and adding the swerve topic to it in brackets?
That's just what I think. Maybe I*am*AOU on this?
All the best,
