Beware the Tangled Thread(ed)

The Dreaded Threaded View

Is it just me, or are a lot of emails disappearing lately?  There are many possible explanations (Gmail down, Chupacabra ate them), but I think I know the culprit.  It is the dreaded threaded view becoming a standard interface in email clients and webmail layouts.  If you don’t change the subject of an important email in a longer exchange, it just seems to disappear and never get answered.  I believe this is often courtesy of threaded views.  People just don’t realize the message is there.  They are sick of looking at the subject line and so they tune it out thinking it’s old news (or worse, throw it out.)  Maybe you haven’t noticed, but now that I have pointed it out, you will…
