I couldn't agree more. Often when wanting to post a question to the list, I 
have to think seriously as to the subject line.

This is not always easy. You have to reduce to a few words, a question, that 
may result in a reply to your problem.

A good subject line will often result in replies from other users on the list, 
thus getting help from the list, and helping you to resolve your problem.

Well I was also writing some other stuff, but have scrapped it, because I 
thought I was rambling on.

Anyway. What it comes down to is. If you want to get an answer to a question, 
think before you post. Look at the question you are posting to the list, and 
see if it makes sense, and if you are likely to get a reply to it.

Bugger! Even I've lost the plot now.

I've helped Karl out on one problem, but starting a new thread named "stuff" 
doesn't make any sense. Either for the archives, or expecting any replies.

What do they say in poker when you can't go anywhere. Fold. isn't it?
