Many subscribers do not have time to read every email in their mailbox,
and rely on the Subject Header to give them a clue.  People interested in
the Stone Arabia thread should expect not to have to read something
entirely unrelated when they bring up a post with that heading.  If using
the R(eply) key just to get the correct address for sending, it only takes
a moment to delete the Subject header and enter something appropriate.

Meanwhile, Seasons Greetings, all!
