You obviously misunderstood me.  I didn't complain.  I just said such
a subject line is quite unfortunate.  I must admit that the last
sentence sounds quite polemic.  But I don't rely on spam filters and
delete junk mails manually instead.  I don't read unwanted mails
before I delete them.  I never read mails with "URGENT", "Viagra",
"Distress call", ... in the subject field.  I delete them immediately.
I actually read Friedrich's mail accidentally.
