As FOM moderator, I'm delighted that the FOM list has seen a lot of
high quality messages on a variety of topics. However, I have a
suggestion which, if implemented, may prove helpful to the many people
who receive and read these messages.
My suggestion is: When you compose a message for fom at math.psu.edu,
please use the Subject line in the e-mail header to specify explicitly
the subject of the message.
An example of an informative Subject line:
FOM: why noncommutative geometry is better than G"odel's theorem
An example of an uninformative Subject line:
Re: Reply to Davis's reply to Friedman's ReplyToDavis
I am making this suggestion in response to e-mail that I received from
one of you complaining about uninformative subject lines.
Best regards to all,
-- Steve Simpson
