Why are there so many Re: (referencing) threads/post showing up in the Community? Shouldn't these be on the original post, please explain it?

What is the meaning of the abbreviation RE?
I've seen Re: explained as an abbreviation of the words “regarding” or “referencing.” However, Re is not an abbreviation for anything.Re: means “re.” Re is an English preposition in use since at least the 18th century. It means “in the matter of, with reference to.” ... “In regards” is nonstandard English for in regard to.
@mi4090, when you reply to a post the subject field is automatically filled in with the subject of the post you're replying to in the community. This is the "Re:" (in reference to) you're seeing. Most people don't make any changes and let the technology auto-fill the subject. Please note that you can remove that reference and replace it with any subject you see fit.
@mi4090, we are still experiencing technical issues with the AARP Rewards forums. Once we fully understand what's happening we will be able to make adjustments. Know that this has been reported to the appropriate groups for review and resolution.
I'm sure that there has been extensive testing 🙄, but, what about all of the confusing unread topics in the 4 new forums that I have already read. I hope you guys tested and are fixing the problem of transferred topics showing as unread to the users (many of us dues paying, as a reminder).
