I don't know if it's humiliating or merely ironic that I sent out an email under the Subject line "The Hyacinth Passage in TWL" commenting on unclear Subject lines when my own was completely misleading. I sent the message accidentally and meant to send this one:
In July more than forty messages bore the Subject line, "The Hyacinth Passage in TWL."
Communication would be more effective if the Subject line reflected the subject. It would only take a second to change, for example, "The Hyacinth Passage in TWL"to "Paris" when Eliot's year in Paris is the subject, and it would make it more likely that someone would open the message.
Moreover, the list is archived*, and it would make it easier for researchers to access list discussions if the Subject lines were accurate.
