I agree with Bob, and apologize for not doing that with the exchanges on the 
alleged Stokely quote.  Maybe that thread should have the subject line 
"beating a dead horse".

It is extremely useful to be able to depend on subject lines to follow a 
thread, and I have generally been able to do that most of the time on this

Dear Science for the People list users

I don't want to leave the science for the people list.? However I, and I 
would suspect many list members, would like to erase many messages as a 
waste of time.? Puleeze, please do not just reply and keep using the same 
subject lines over and over.? Please take the 10 seconds and put in a 
subject line that actually reflects what your message is about.?? Subject 
lines like?? " I really know what Stokely said 40 years ago"? Rather than 
"Why did Science for the Peopld die" would be more fair and useful to us 

I mean this most sincerely.? I learned years ago that when you click 
on?reply to use an address, you can always, and always should, re-write the 
subject line as a sign of respect to the recipients.

Please do this.

Please, for me, for everyone.? I am serious.? I don't think you all have to 
attack me now, with an endless exchange using my subject line above.? Just 
start using accurate subject lines without winning an?argument with me.?
