Subject lines was: just a suggestion

Yes, and I generally do this when I change the topic, but occasionaly do forget. 
I also often change the subject line even when I did not change the subject myself, and even bring this up frequently enough that I sometimes worry that 
folks will get tired of me trying to correct bad posting practices.

In the same vane many people start a conversation with a subject that gives little or no idea as to what is being discussed or what question is asked. 
I do delete email that does not interest me when I know I am unlikely to be able to contribute any thing useful to the conversation, and often delete 
imprecisely subjected messages. 
More often I do answer a person once or twice and give them a reminder about making good subject lines, and sometimes I just answer, but I certainly 
think spending a few seconds coming up with an explanatory subject for an email is the least one can do if they are asking for help.
