First, this has nothing to do with "[ADMIN]" so you have incorrectly
flagged your message.  This is completely off-topic and, ghence, should be
flagged "[OFF-TOPIC]."

Second, I prefer the "" being there.  This allows me to seperate
my e-mail.  I now have a script that writes all the CircleMUD Mailing List
mails into a seperate folder.  This allows me to get any e-mails that
might be important pertaining to my actual MUD or whatnot without having
to go through the spam of the list.

Besides which, it's eight more characters.  It's not like you can't get
the subject of the message because of eight more characters.  That's being
ridiculous, IMHO.  Stop exaggerating and wasting everyone's time.  It's
just 8 characters...
