  topic thread
  
      (From Usenet, GEnie, CompuServe) A more or
     less continuous chain of postings on a single subject, sent to
     a forum such as a Usenet newsgroup.  To "follow a thread"
     is to read a series of postings sharing a common subject.
  
     On Usenet these are connected by "Reference" headers.  The
     better newsreaders can present news in thread order
     automatically.
