Re: ADMIN: Tell it like it is

From: "Walter Moores" <wmoores@watervalley.net>

	I cannot see any way out of making my comments a 'me, too' response, 
and here goes.  I just recently joined another list that has no 
subject tags, and even though there is a subject line (which somebody 
fails to change), I find that I never know what I am getting into 
when I open one of the messages (particularly off topic chitchat and 
how the grandchildren are faring or Aunt Sally's misery).  That, of 
course, happens on iris-talk, but less often because of the subject 
tags.  When used properly, subject tags are a definite asset.  If we 
get rid of them, I wonder how anybody will be able to use Digest or 
the Archives.  The Archives are a treasure trove of iris knowledge 
and lore and would be totally useless and unsearchable without 
subject tags.
