?  I didn't hijack a thread...  this is a mailing list.  All I did was 
hit reply list to a random email, cleaned out the messages & subject and 
started a new thread.  How is that wrong..?

I did try your suggestion, and it doesn't do anything but interrupt the 
operation... and I get an "Operation could not be completed error."  
Which makes sense...
