followup: n. On USENET, a posting generated in response to
   another posting (as opposed to a reply, which goes by email
   rather than being broadcast).  Followups include the ID of the
   parent message in their headers; smart news-readers can use
   this information to present USENET news in `conversation' sequence
   rather than order-of-arrival.  See thread.
