The list guidelines are included in the footer (as well as on the sign
up page and welcome message) and they already ask users to start a new
subject rather than hijacking threads:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Communicate/MailingListGuidelines#newsubject

I don't see the benefit of reiterating all of the guidelines in each
message.  Perhaps we need a page on the wiki that explains why
hijacking threads is frowned upon in more detail, which can be used
whenever someone does this.  This could be similar to:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PostIsOffTopic

Seeing one post with a link like that would be better than seeing a
weekly lesson on why hijacking threads is bad, IMO.  I think way too
much time is spent on administrivia as it is. :(
