first thread ;)
and also the only thread ;D;D
Let's hope this will not remain the only thread, considering the following Microsoft patent applications:
EP1672579 A2 "Thread based e–mail" (applied for in June 2006)
we are lucky this is a web forum and not a newsgroup.
EP1566741 A1 "SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR MANAGING DISCUSSION THREADS BASED ON RATINGS" (applied for in 2005)
it was wise not to add a rating mechanism to this site yet.
We'll see what the European Patent Office decides. I am not too optimistic.
