I personally like the idea, but only if it could be coupled with an
automatic prefix on the subject line. Several other mailing list I
belong to preface the subject with, for example, [fir-wiz] or [TSCM-L]
so that it is easy to sort. This is the only way this would be an
improvement, otherwise it just gets all lumped together.
Unless you unsubscribed to some of the lists. But who would do that and
possibly miss the good stuff?
