Hi,

I am following accessibility issues for Opera. Among a lot of other other  
work. I just spent the lunch-break in a meeting reading 36 messages (since  
the weekend began) about table parsing, labelled as if they belonged to an  
old accessibility thread.

Apart from wasting lots of people's time, this also makes it less likely  
that *anything* will be read - we have actually withdrawn a senior  
engineer from this group because the mail volume and poor labelling wastes  
too much time, which is not a really productive thing to have to do. If  
your goal is to improve the working of the group, please check whether the  
subject of your email reflects what you are writing - and remember that  
there is a good chance there will be 20 responses following that adopt the  
subject you have, so your entire thread will just vanish into trash  
otherwise.

(Plus people will be calling down curses on you, and eventually one of  
them might take effect :) ).

Cheers

Chaals
