Good idea. However, since you are probably not using the web interface you probably are oblivious to the fact that your note yet appeared in the "Jerry Rosen" thread.
Since I use the web interface exclusively, I can only guess at the problem, and I guess the problem is that you used your "reply" button. I suppose that in order to make a clean break from one thread in order to start a new thread, you (and everyone else using email) should avoid the "reply" button and "send" your note, with a new subject line, as a new message.
MATH Forum Administration* may want to say something on this point.
By the way, this note will start a new branch in the MATH TEACH message tree, so youse can safely "reply" to it.
Haim Je me souviens
*To determine how to thread mailed messages into its web archives, the Forum's discussion software considers the headers "In-Reply-To:" and "References:" which, in the case of Michael's post of yesterday, pointed to the existing "More from Jerry Rosen ..." thread.
To post by e-mail in such a way as to spawn a new thread in our web archives, compose a new message rather than reply to an existing one.
Administratively, the list moderator may also choose to branch messages post-hoc.
