Surnames in CAPITALS & real Subjects, Please
- Hi List
Some pet gripes - sorry! Best to get it over before the holidays.
I belong to many lists, as do most of us. It is vital to be able
to scan each message quickly to determine if it is relevant.
We all have busy lives so:
Could I respectfully ask ALL listers to put
all Surnames in CAPITALS.
Many folk do this but many don't.
Also consider if Place-names/Parish names could put usefully
be put in capitals when they are the main AND the important
part of the message.
And, please, make the SUBJECT of the message meaningful.
Most people do but folk replying to Digests often leave the
Subject heading as found. A recent one had this subject:
"Re: XXXX-D Digest V05 #394"
This isn't a unique case. Some Lists have whole threads
similarly obscure. Don't be afraid of changing the Subject
field, especially if dealing with one point or a variant!
And, while moaning, could you maybe REMOVE THE DROSS
from the end of any messages copied. I once had a
message of one line which had fifteen screensful of
irrelevant copies [and bland Server messages] attached
to it when only the latest four line message was relevant.
I'm running out of storage space.
End of whinge. I feel better and hope I haven't offended
anyone. Sorry to anyone who got multiple copies.
Love & peace to all you good searchers.
