Of course we all make mistakes. All kinds of mistakes. I'm no exception, Jan, 
as you have noted on several occasions. But even I can get the hang of this 

The use of the Subject Tags has always been optional. But what I notice is 
that when people don't use the Tags they usually don't use a well thought out 
subject line in place of them, either.  The whole point of the list is 
communication, but you've got to make some effort to be understood, or why 
should anyone bother to read it?

We have people on the list with a modest command of the language who manage 
to make it all fit together well, but it eludes native speakers. Just makes 
me scratch my head sometimes.
