Some changes I made to the script found at http://jonathan-kim.com/2013/gmail-no-response Specifically: I added the ignoreThisSubject() and threadHasIgnoreLabel() functions.
/*
* This script goes through your Gmail Inbox and finds recent emails where you
* were the last respondent. It applies a nice label to them, so you can
* see them in Priority Inbox or do something else.
*
* To remove and ignore an email thread, just remove the unrespondedLabel and
* apply the ignoreLabel.
*
* This is most effective when paired with a time-based script trigger.
*
* For installation instructions, read this blog post:
* http://jonathan-kim.com/2013/Gmail-No-Response/

I need help with your evolution script,

1?) in line 23, if I put commas, may I also have more Subjects that I would like to ignore?
2?) If a counterpart answers my mails, but changes the subject I originally wrote for instance (original text), adding something before my text, for instance ( answer to: "original text") I would like that my mail does not appears in the no response ones
3?) if the same person of ?2 answers also with a different mail address, I would like that my mail does not appears in the no response ones

If You have an idea , it would be appreciated due to the fact that with your evolution you centered the problem...

thanks - renato
