I read Tim's comment as a general observation, and it strikes a chord
with me.

I tend to leave in my mailbox the messages that might turn out to be of
some interest to me. Occasionally I'll look back at the ones that
received no reply and post a follow-up or ping if nobody else has, but
all too often I don't. Here are the most recent ones still sitting in
my in-box:

(No archive links - too much hassle.)

There were probably also some unanswered messages on subjects that I
don't even try to monitor, which I will have just deleted.

So I guess I could help by posting pings when I see this. Of course we
encourage original posters to follow up their own messages, but that
doesn't mean we shouldn't try to follow up too.
