I agree that some postings could best be directed to individuals.
I certainly agree that good descriptive subject lines go a long way
toward helping me determine which message I want to read. Conventions
like placing a ? before a querry also help identify types of messages.
Perhaps we could all send our ideas again to Nancy Start, and she could
make some "rules" ?
 
However, some of the seemingly chatty messages have in fact contained
valuable information.
 
Finally, while referring ILL/Verification/Journal Exchanges to more
specific lists could reduce volume; it could require people to subscribe
to more lists than are desirable. It is nice to know that the bulk of
electronic communication among medical librarians occurs right here.
I think!?
