9:54 - on the importance of descriptive subject lines
Often, when I get a large ammount of emails at one time, I'll do a mental prioritizing of them based partly on who it is from ("oh, it's bob again, probably just another bad joke") and what the subject line says ("hrmm, 'EMERGENCY' eh, I guess I'll check it").
I just got one with the following subject line: "Printer putting ink on pages"
My first thought when I saw this: "Great, that's what it's supposed to do."
