IMO a more significant problem is people changing threads without reflecting that in the subject header.

Subject: Re: Emoji: emoticons vs. literacy
Asmus, and others... This bit of e-fashion is becoming annoyingly
e-common. Please, if you want to add your voice to what someone else has
just written, then please write something that requires more than one
bit to relay. Or at least truncate their note.
Receiving an e-mail that says merely "+1" -- i.e., exactly one bit of
information -- followed by the /complete /note that was just sent by
someone else is annoying. It's like, 1000/1 noise to signal.
And it's popping up more and more on the Unicode list and this list.
Just my 2 cents.
(And next time I see a particularly egregious example on the Unicode
list I think I'll also mention this pet peeve over there...)
