Email subject line cause threads to not thread in inbox

When MSE upgraded the forums the emails went from

Reply to thread '[THREAD]'


[MoneySavingExpert Forum] [USER] commented on [THREAD]

However this has caused gmail to incorrectly thread the messages. Instead of threading them in order they are grouped by each poster!. This causes lots of clutter and prevents reading any conversations with full context when subscribed.

Please can you update the subject to something like "[MoneySavingExpert Forum] New comment on [THREAD]" so email clients can thread the messages correctly. It would really help reduce inbox clutter and help users keep up with their subscriptions with less stress.
