On a scale of 0 to 9 where 0 is negative and 5 is positive. Count me in as 
a 1. I have explored the lists to which I subscribe and it appears to be 
50-50. I must admit that I have never taken any notice up to now.

What I do find offensive is the gratuitous adding of Re: RE: Ang: etc. 
TCP/IP has one bit that says that the packet is part of an already 
initiated conversation. That seems enough. I suspect that people are not 
editing the subject line when they reply.

Another thing that does definitely annoy me is that some people's clocks 
seem to be set up strangely. Could the list fix the time as it 
re-transmits? I have to keep scrolling up through past, read, emails to 
find those that are as yet unread but off the top of the window.

The list could sensibly set the "reply to" address to be the list rather 
than the originating individual.
