Re: New version of Yahoo Mail details
Those "subject" lines are a holdover from Oddpost which had a lot of
wry wit. I guess the idea was that, among close friends, you could
use these humourous subject lines instead of typing your own, since
your friends would read your mail anyway. Obviously, they are not
intended for formal or business communication and they likely will get
pulled before the product emerges from beta.
I clicked through about 20 of the subject lines just now and didn't
see anything vulgar (some dark humour) but I did see a few that might
result in mail being diverted by a spam filter.
