I love mails without subject, they are quickly solved by me - with the
DEL key ;-)

Your expectations are wrong. Try read the RFC about mail headers and
about relations between emails.

You cannot create thread, you can send message only, which is not
related to others. Thread is created by the first reply with relation,
but some clients doesn't properly sets the appropriate headers, then
there is threading by subject as addition.
