Subject lines that have nothing to do with message content

    Personally speaking, I would have expected that a recent message on this
    list with the sujbect line "Katakana_Or_Hiragana" might have something to
    do with Japanese, Hiragana, Katakana, or at least Han, or perhaps even
    Asia. But no... It was about Phoenician.

    It would be really helpful if people could use subject lines that have
    something to do with the subject of the message.

    It just can't be that difficult for people to pick a reasonable subject
    line. And if you're going to go off-topic in a thread, you might consider
    getting a different subject line -- or at least adding a parenthetical
    about how you're going to go off the thread...

    (As usual, this is my personal opinion and doesn't reflect an official
    policy, etc.)
