This can be very annoying, because it breaks the "thread-ness" of
mailing list threads. It's much easier to follow a thread or know what's
going on if the subject line is consistent. Also, some e-mail and
mailing list archiving software won't consider the two e-mails part of
the same thread - no good.
Changing the subject line of a thread should really only be done when
the thread has forked. For example, "[chandler-users] Occasional
problems with mail software (was: Nabble breaks mail threading)".
Just a useful tip, especially if you start posting on mailing lists that
are patrolled by traditionalists.
