The use of an email client does not solve the gmail problem though, 
which I know you know. In fact a properly threaded client like 
Thunderbird, when used with lists via gmail, is especially exasperating 
because you can not see where you entered a (long) thread, which is 
otherwise displayed beautifully minus your own posts. I can't see why 
anyone would prefer it that way...
