That's the references header from your original post, still listing the
upline of the thread (Incipient hardware failure?) your post was
supposedly a reply to. Start with a /new/ post, not a reply to an
/existing/ post, if you want to start a new thread. Otherwise, you hijack
the old one, because the references still point to it, and most decent
clients thread based on those references.
