If you did not click on the url sent by Laird Kelly the other day, 
you missed being taken to the Dork Tower and learning a good lesson
through cartoons.  I know I have been a Subject Creep or a dork many 
times over for not changing the subject line when I have gone into 
other realms not covered by the subject at hand.  Often, this is done 
in my haste to get an answer to one who has inquired and I have 
drifted afield in my answer.  Thanks, Laird.

Back in '99 when the list was around 300 in membership, Christopher 
Hollinshead (now curator of the AIS Web Site), conducted a survey on
the use of Subject Tags.  We voted to keep them.  This can be found 
in the Mallorn Archives in April of '99.

On April 26, 2000, Anner Whitehead (now AIS Memberships Chairman and 
#! 1Chronicler)  wrote a dissertation on the Hows, Whys and 
Wherefores of Subject Tags.  John I. Jones, list-owner and AIS Board 
Member with computer credentials, has referred to this work of 
Anner's several times when we have strayed.

I have posted this from the historical (not administrative for which 
I have no authority) point of view and do hope you'll investigate 
sometime.  You'll see other archives besides those on irises.
