I hope you'll indulge me in a little confirmation here, as I've never
heard of such behaviour on other lists. Some would consider it /good/
netiquette to change the Subject: line within a thread when the
conversation within some branch of the thread has drifted onto some
side-topic and the original Subject: line is no longer matching the
actual content, like with the "X (was Y)" style of subject that one
sometimes sees for a few articles before the "(was Y)" part gets
dropped. So, not really starting a new thread, just reflecting that the
current thread has now mutated beyond recognition -- as indeed this one
already has and the Subject: line has become inappropriate. If people do
that on this list, it will actually reject their message automatically?
If so, for this list, should I just be leaving the Subject: line as it
is, or is it preferred that I actually start a different thread while
quoting material from this thread?

(Though, admittedly, on this list there's a fair chance the X would be
enough off-topic that I wouldn't normally be replying anyway!)
