ADMIN: Subject Tags

I think it is timw to remind everyone to try to remember to use subject tags
in the Subject line of their messages.

Subject tags are used to help subscribers who use filters to sort their
mail, and for others to decide whether they want to read or delete a

Subject Tags are used to preface the subject lines of the messages you
send to the list.

Use only the Subject Tags contained in the list sent out in the Welcome
Message that you got when you subscribed to iris-talk (You DID read it
didn't you? - And maybe printed it out for reference?)  I have also
included the list below. Print it out for future reference.

The format is the tag in ALL CAPS, followed by a colon (:), followed by
your subject. (no space between the subject tag and the colon)

[Subject tag]:[your subject description]

The colon is a very important part of the tag. No other separators are
allowed there

For instance:

REB: Mariposa Skies in California

Would be a proper Subject Tag and subject line

Reb-Mariposa Skies in California

would *NOT* be a proper tag (the tag is not in all caps and contains a
"-" instead of a ":" as a seperator)

Remember it is ok to fix a Subject Tag when you "Reply", and to change
the Tag and subject if your reply is wondering far afield of the
original subject.

Don't forget to cut out all that unnecessary text from your replies.

If you are having any trouble with any of this, please contact me
directly at:
