Useful Subjects

The `Subject:' line of an article is what will first attract people to read it--if it's vague or doesn't describe what's contained within, no one will read the article. At the same time, `Subject:' lines that're too wordy tend to be irritating. For example:

Subject: Building Emacs on a Sun Sparc under 4.1

Subject: Tryin' to find Waldo in NJ.

Subject: I can't get emacs to work !!!

Subject: I'm desperately in search of the honorable Mr. Waldo in the state of@dots

Simply put, try to think of what will best help the reader when he or she encounters your article in a newsreading session.
