We all make mistakes, and a gentle (or even not so gentle) reminder
after it has happened is far more likely to have the desired effect
  -- being remembered for next time -- than someone pointing out
yet another link at the bottom of each message.

Besides, the etiquette --- and the appreciation for having consistent
email threading --- learned here is transferable to other lists,
where there may be no such link.
