I would normally have given the condescending tone of the following post the
silence it deserves, but found it troubling that from the email address the
author is apparently a member of the loadstone team.
Paul, Steve myself and I'm sure others are hardly asking anyone to do anyone
else's work; appending the list's name to the subject line is a common
listserve feature for a reason. If the Loadstone team is interested in
attracting feedback and technical support from the user community I would
hope the team at large unlike this individual member understands that these
activities are not encouraged by casting dispersions on those who exploit
common listserve features or have a filtering system that suits their
personal comfort zone.

I personally prefer no list specific prefix in the subject, for me it's
really annoying. If someone gets lots of spam, he should think about a
proper way to sorten out most of it and not let others do the work for him.
There are many ways on the net to do that, for example have a look at

I think filtering listmails into subfolders isn't too much to expect of
someone. Filtering for the string "Reply-To: loadstone at loadstone-gps.com"
in mailheader is a proper way.
just my 2 cent,
Because of the bad readability of the text.
