I had an English professor who, while analyzing poetry, stated that the title of the poem was VERY important. It usually gave you huge clues as to what the poem was REALLY about.
That said, I think one should take great care in the SUBJECT line of an e-mail. Many of us get 100-300 emails A DAY. I generally skim thru my INBOX and read the subject lines to determine if I want to read on. Furthermore, subject lines that are less than descriptive to the subject/question/comment at hand pose even more of a problem when reading the archives.
Perhaps I'm the only one that feels this way, but I'd like to see people put a little more thought into their subject lines.
Just trying to help out the mail list community, Jeremy
