The point Chuck was making was about digests, not regular threads. One
digest contains messages from multiple distinct topics, so when you reply
to a digest without editing the reply, all of those messages are being
included, on all of the topics. That's not helpful.

While I agree with you that having the full thread for a topic can be
useful, having the entire digest of multiple topics is not. I'd further add
that editing the subject line when replying to a digest message would be
very helpful. (I've done that with this message.) Seeing a reply to
"chirp_users Digest, Vol 146, Issue 4" doesn't give any hint as to which
message is being replied to, or which topic the message is really about.
