RE: Administrative Request - any chance to introduce a subject prefix for this email list?

To satisfy both sides, can this be made a per subscriber setting?

Those who want it, can have it, others not.

Goat saved, wolf full. (slovenian proverb, the english equivalent is: run with the hare and hunt with the hounds )

(the list software would also have to filter out the prefix from incoming emails)



PS: Writing thru a web GUI, that why top posting.

Yes, it is especially handy for quickly skimming incoming messages without having to click around (is it work related or list related or is it a topic I'm interested in?) Sorting into folders or enabling a filter isn't always an optimal workflow for users of different email applications (e.g. gmail). It is very rare to find a mailing list that doesn't use [subject line] so we tend to appreciate like behavior between lists.

I think this is a reasonable request.

While your request is reasonable, I won't do it:

As I mentioned a very long time ago on the very same subject, the downside is too messy to deal with.
the mail subjects just get too long and longer with every reply.

Just set up your email client properly to deal with the header fields and you're fine.
