A suggestion for the archives

When I've searched the archives for past articles, I've often noticed how a thread gets
"renamed" in the course of the discussion, making it difficult to find all the relevant
articles. A recent case in point is the "Tidy and Well-Organized" message. There seem
to be several articles responding to it, but under different subject names.

If we would all stick to the same original subject line, it would be much easier to find
the entire thread later. When I respond to a message, hitting the Re:Mail button
automatically puts the name of the original in the subject line. If yours doesn't do
that, how about writing it in as it was posted?

I would also like to suggest we include the most pertinent lines of whatever we're
responding to, so others know what's going on. Sometimes the responses seem
like personal messages that probably should have been sent privately.
