D - Starting new threads from old

Those forking new threads should favor 'new post' over 'reply.'  A 'reply'
leaves embedded references to the old thread, misaligning newsreaders.  (Yeah I
can fiddle with options, but just use new post as a courtesy.)

This etiquette will improve signal-to-noise on D news because we can attend just
the threads that interest us.  I would encourage more forking because D
newsgroup threads tend to wander around quite a lot.  (Example - Ilya, if you
want to talk about Icon string scanning, start a new thread.)
