No, it's a branch of the original thread, you still have references to
the op in your headres. My MUA is building a thread view and your "new"
thread is stil part of the original one, but, the good point is you
changed the subject in a way that shows the original one. That looks
clear to me and is not comparable to people trying to create a new
thread by taking a message somewhere, hitting "reply to', cleaning the
subject and the content of the reply and asking their question.
Some MUA are only building threads looking at the subject and so will
show these as new ones, I consider this as a poor way of threading.
Others will use the "References" header, but, unfortunately, some MUA
will not respect this header and clean it so threads are broken, that's
another bad point for these MUAs (they usually don't consider this
header to build the threads so they don't care cleaning it). Building
threads in MUA is not easy, it's far easier with usenet where
"References" is far more respected.
And, as we are talking about usage, cleaning messages sometimes is not
