Salve Richard, *!

I full agree with you! But dubbel mails from gmail is IMHO
not the worst - it is starting new threads with every answer
be not using working "Referneces" or "In-Replay-To"....

The gmailers here on the list are also _rowdily_ by not using an
emailclient with supporting working "References" :((
Maybe they are so ICT unskilled that they do not know that good
emailcinets support threading for efficient and civilised communication.

So either someone of the gmail guys explains the other gmail ICT-noobs
how to use an emailclient for a civilised participtation on a
mailinglist, or I will gooing filter all mails comming from
(Gmail users seems to become what AOL users has been known for)

Nice hints like:
S: Small hint:
    Your Email hasn't a working "References:" or "In-Reply-To:"
    in its header, so no email client could put it into the
    right thread. Please check if you can answer with

Seems not to be understood or respected.

****Sorry for my hard words,*****
but as we known there are over 800 people on the list and a mailinglist 
without respecting References in the emailheader will making an 
unneccessary mess in our inboxes, but also on the webarchives.

So when you are using gmail and you know how to use gmail
civilised on a mailinglist, please explain other gmailers
how to do so....
Which gmail user can help?
Thank you :))
