Subject: Numerical headings are uninformative

In agreement with those who favor informative headings, I find that
numerical headings are especially undesirable. Few of us can remember the
topics of messages by the numbers a day or two later. Please don't use "Re
message 314159." It is much better to say "Relativistic quantum
chromodynamic effects suggest parallel universes". This is longer, but it
saves the reader who is interested in cryoprotective agents from going
through half of your message to find out that he would rather skip it.
