Re: AW: do we need a forum ?

I think that Bill was implying that since many users appreciate short  
and informative subject lines (same as "header" a.f.a.i.k.) there is  
another suggestion that would achieve the same result as yours; i.e.  
easy sorting out the mails coming through the list among all other  
mails in ones inbox. It seems the choice is between teaching list  
members to sort their mail by filtering or adding up some flyer to  
the subject field to allow those who do not use filtering to spot the  
list mails by eye and pick them manually.

Another method, used by some who for some reason don't want to filter  
the mail, is to subscribe to the digest version.
