Tom, how do you feel when you are searching an archive and cannot find something on the topic you want, say, "scratchy records" and never knew that there were a hundred messages about that under the topic, "old record players"? Just a made-up example.

But in real time following a list, who cares? There are many sides to the argument, but complaining is just a whine. No information here, folx, please move along.  Who's annoying whom? Who's the scold?

I say again, this is a silly thing to get exercised about. I don't pay any attention to subject lines once a thread gets going. People who must have a super-accurate subject line are asking too much of others. If they scold about it, they then are annoying others, so who's being more rude?
