Netiquette recommends that the subject be changed when the topic of
the conversation does.  Knowledge of netiquette is probably the first
thing that any wannabe-moderator should display.  Posting the same
useless and off-topic message to 3 different threads is a clear
demonstration of unsuitability.

Do you actually expect us to abide by netiquette just because you're
not interested in some topics that you probably can't even define?
And since you haven't even read the discussion after you kill-filed
it, you couldn't even refer to what it is that disturbs you in it any

What if someone were to demand all people who post say technical
questions to use the same subject line, so that it's easier for us
Fedora users who're not that interested in technical discussions to
filter them out more easily?  Would that work for you?

I thought so.
