This seems a bit more disciplined than is likely to fly on a large and
diverse group like this one.  In addition, I think it might to some
extent inhibit discussion because some people would be intimidated by
the requirement of learning a bunch of rules about the syntax and
semantics of the Subject line.  And then there would be other people,
like me probably, who would take one look at all those rules and just
ignor them.  Not to mention a LARGE number of people who would object to
spending time and effort discussing issues like this.

Hey all,
I'm member in another mailing-list, where the following behaviour is
standard: it's usal to use the prefixes Q for 'trara' Question, FYI
stands for 'For your interest', AW for 'Answer' AND S for 'Summary'.
The proceeding of posting a question is, that persons answer directly
only to that person, that posted the question and that person sends
around after finalizing the collection of answers to her/his question a
Summary. That makes it quite easy to follow the list postings.
Maybe we could introduce something similar?
regards from Hungary, Tanja
