RE: Re: RE
Half the time when I’m composing an email message, I have no idea what the main thrust of the “subject” is going to be. Shouldn’t the subject line be the send button? You indicate who you’re sending your message to, you type your message, then you type your subject in and hit enter which sends the message.
Or maybe your email program will eventually figure out what words one should extract from the body of the email message and make automatic subject lines. Nouns, mostly.
Subject: Cat tree fireman ladder slipped gurney hospital cat tree
