That is a very good point and is the one down point I can see in this.

Right now, if you want to post something about PICs to the PICList, you have
to:
A) Click on "New Message" or whatever button triggers your email client to
send email
B) Enter .....PICLIST.....spamKILLspamMITVMA.MIT.EDU in the "To..." field
C) Enter a subject line
D) Enter the post text in the body.

With the new system, step C would be modified to read:
C) Enter [PIC]: and the rest of the subject line.

Replying to a message would not be any different.

So... we are talking about requiring 6 extra keystrokes when posting. Its
not a lot, but it is extra work and I do understand that basically, this is
asking 99% of the PICList to do (a little) more so that the 1% that can't
bother to add [OT] reliably, will be reminded that they are on the subject
of PICs.

That's why we are asking for feedback on this idea. I still think its the
way to go, but I really will respect whatever the bulk of the list decides.
It may just not be worth it.
