[REBOL] Re: what a subject ;-) Re: Re: [enum][constructor][memory][cloning][vid]

I think it add value with little work. Though I would prefer to see a single block of keywords For example I think your subject line might have been better as: [enum constructor memory cloning vid] Which goes to show that it was not a good choice of keywords. Even better would have been: [subject keywords] I do not think there is much value is getting hung up on any rules though. A simple convention to have a short list of keywords - preferrably one keyword is good enough. If someone misses it - it doesn't matter. If most people use it, it becomes a useful community tradition.

Adding a small focussed keyword list to the subject line encourages people to be a think about terminology a little more. Probably will help you when you do your searching of emails - even with Mozilla. Regards, Brett.
