I don't think so. IMO, if you're indicating that you're wanting to change
the subject it is like going off on a tangent and no longer relevant to the original
thread. It would be overly complex for google to have to determine if you've actually
did change the subject line to then decide if it should remove the References: header.
So, for example, how would one, legitimately , add 'Solved' to a
Subject: line and still expect it to follow the thread?
All of the time allowing Newbie and whatever. Ignoring the trolls. :-)
