It's useful for anyone trying to track what this group does, and how  
decisions are made. (In theory. Taking input from undisclosed sources  
limits transparency and the ability to follow what this group did).

So I would say yes, although so long as you are within a thread you could  
rely on people using the threading of archives. (In theory. In practice it  
seems people forget to actually start new threads...)
