since this thread contains several different discussions going in 
various directions at different speeds it would be helpful if you could 
be more specific. if you only have seen one of them i understand why you 
did not do this, but it would be helpful if you include the context 
below you email. thank you.

it is unfortunate when this situation occurs. one solution would be to 
fork the thread (like this: New question, nothing to do with the
subject matter of this discussion. WAS: benchmarks game harsh 
criticism). however, i think it is impolite, and likely to upset, to 
fork the thread for somebody else when it is they themselfs that keep 
adding subjects to their own thread. on the other hand, if i wanted to 
introduce a new subject, and keep it going, in a thread started by 
somebody else, i would hopefully remember to fork.

currently i try to cope by limiting my posts to maximum one per 
discussion per day.

Those were the days...
    EPO guidelines 1978: "If the contribution to the known art resides
    solely in a computer program then the subject matter is not
    patentable in whatever manner it may be presented in the claims."
