My email software GroupWise has an option to display a discussion thread. This option is named "Diskursabfolge" in the German language version.
Googling for this term revealed 168 hits only, half of those intimately connected to GroupWise.
This makes me believe that we have a non-existing term here that may have been introduced by a software company for reasons I can not comprehend.
Does anybody have an idea why this was done? May it be that there is a similar term in English that would have misled them to this translation? What better term should have been used instead? Or is "Diskursabfolge" actually a known word that I have missed before?
