[rescue] OT: Maintaining list threading

Can anyone offer some assistance on how to get my replies to this list 
to thread properly, preferably using OS X? Currently all my replies 
show up as new threads, so to speak, instead of replies to established 

- There doesn't appear to be any simple one-click way to reply to 
messages in the daily digest via clickable URLs in the body; it just 
wants to start a 100% blank reply to that address instead. Furthermore, 
mail.app doesn't seem to let me manually set/change the "in-reply-to" 
header value, which would let me cobble together my own reply.

- When I click an "at"-munged email address in the archives using 
Firefox in an attempt to reply, there is never an appropriate 
"In-Reply-To" header entry in the presented mailto: url (it's either 
blank for the original posts or correct for my target's "in-reply-to" 
and twice-removed for mine, leading me to believe that the archive 
mailto: URLs are not intended to be used in this way).

I'd really prefer not to abandon the daily digest and receive the list 
as individual emails (for obvious inbox clutter reasons). I *would* 
prefer to not screw up the list threading any longer for the benefit of 
the rest of you. :) Hopefully I'm just overlooking something very 
simple. Thanks in advance for any insight.
