Re: [orca-list] Why? Was: Why ?

Personally i don't mind having the new prefix, and i can't really
understand why we fuzz about it. But that's me.

I don't like to hear always that "[Orca-list]". How do others think about
Personally, I prefer no prefix in subject lines, as mailman lists 
provide useful headers to allow me to filter my mail, and its one more 
thing that has to be read however I do understand why others prefer to 
have a prefix, and not just for filtering reasons.

I suggested to Will that it should be changed to something like "[orca]" 
or "Orca list:"
because I would occasionally see subject lines like "Orca orca ate my 
and thought it might be a tad confusing to blind users just using speech.

Personally I like the ability to sort by Subject so that all the Orca 
messages are
right together and I can read them easily. I realize I could easily 
achieve the
same with filtering.

But this is a democratic list. Or at least it was the last time I 
checked. So...
I throw it open to the list and we'll go with the majority.

Votes so far:

Hermann - just "Orca".
Luke - nothing at all:
Rich - "[orca-list]"
