  followup  n.  [common]  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}.
