Re: Observation of Reply Behaviour of Some List Members

Felix G.

I can only speak from my experience. Years ago I used to behave in the
same way, and the reason was that my mail reader wasn't configured to
a thread-centric view but rather to a message-centric one, so my inbox
was a one-dimensional list of messages. Nowadays I only use the Gmail
web interface and that sorts everything by threads, by importance, and
by lots of other criteria only the Google AI knows.

I've noticed a lot recently, that when a topic is replied to, some list members do not read the responses to the initial post. This is evident when someone asks a question, then gets a response, likely answering the question or resolving an issue. Subsequent responses to the thread seek to provide the same response, sometimes more than once, with the same solution/answer, or questions relating to the issue, even after the opening poster has stated in the thread that all is resolved. Is there a good explanation for this? Now, I am not a moderator, so can't enforce anything, but I find it very annoying to have to skip through multiple messages of the same origin. Why don't persons read the thread in its entirety before posting?
