I also think this is a bad idea, and it certainly is not universal.

See, that's one of the (many) mostly effective methods.  That particular
one fails when someone (god knows why) puts the list in a bcc.  But that
is rare enough not to really be an issue.  So again, why make the
subject line (the only part meant for human eyes) longer than it needs
to be?
