Hi, Gene, let me post my reply from your message as the messages from
cgw993 in this thread (never happened previously), maybe it was a
coincidence, but with subject or not they didn't arrive to my mail
inbox :-?

And that's the reason of this reply, do you (all) had knowledge of
this "un-subjected" mail from your inbox, or from the web archive of
the mailing list?

If was only with the mailing list maybe you have there an undesired
annoying behavior of why mails shouldn't be without a subject. I
agree with other posters. I find annoying mails without subject.

About the privacy of subjects, first, this is a public list, and,
second, with private mails you can be more concise and maybe
confusing on subjects. Also, I answer to your doubt: no, PGP/GnuPG
doesn't encrypt subject.

The warning is to keep a bit of deference with the addressee.

Regards :)
