List managers can generally do with the mail as they want. There is no
contract or consideration for what is normally a free service, except the
terms set up by the List administrators. If conditions of a List warrant
adding a prefix to the Subject line for easy identification, I'm all for it.
I get bags of mail as do most, much coming from several mailing lists. I
have neither the time or inclination in setting up my mail program (Eudora
Pro 2.12) to sort messages. Many mail services such as hotmail.com have no
such feature anyway... yes, I realize I may be appealing to the lowest
common denominator here! The mail lists adding a prefix identifier in the
Subject line are easiest to identify quickly and respond to. All I need to
do is press the 'Subject' column head for a sort! My other alternative is
having several email addresses to receive mail in, but I digress. I do not
find the RFC822 'just because' argument persuasive, any more than the tedious
colloquially on why the 'reply-to' header to the list should not be added.
