And, how frustrating is it when the subject line doesn't reflect
the change in topic?

If it's frustrating for those who care, how much more
frustrating is it for those who don't?

And this is what I heard in a lot of those back and forths.
People were not understanding. Different perspectives.
And I hasten to add, again, that I'm one of the people most
frustrated by same question, same question, same question, same
answer, same answer, same answer.
There was also a lot of cross-purposes, too. Any time computer
technology is being talked about having a clear idea of the
thing being talked about is vital. Scope creep, as we used to
call it, always leads to chaos.
This particular medium is also awful for trying to piece
together fragments of information spread across a great many
posts. And it's worse when the same information gets repeated,
but just slightly differently enough that you're not certain
that the same thing has been said, at least twice. When you
lather, rinse, repeat that cycle . . .

real art of conversation is not only to say the right
thing in the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong
thing at the tempting moment.
