This has nothing to do with the size of the community. Everyone who's 
subscribed to the list gets all mails anyway and you hijacking another 
thread will probably even lead to *less* people reading your message 
(because they are not interested in the CPUARM_HAS_BLX_LABEL topic for 
example (I for example simply mark complete threads I'm not interested 
in as "read" when I see they have new messages)). In addition this is 
more a topic for fpc-pascal than fpc-devel.

Honestly, no, that's not up to Gary to decide. This is part of the 
mailing list etiquette that is followed here on this list and which is 
rather standard on mailing lists anyway. At least change the subject and 
add "Was: OLD TITLE" or something like this or better yet: do not hijack 
other threads.
