[GO friends] email etiquette

I want to make a plea for a descriptive Subject for email sent to 
this list. The last one I got was simply labeled Help. Since I didn't 
know the sender, this looked a first glance _exactly_ like someone 
wanting to give me $1.5M if I would just send them my checking 
account number. I usually automatically discard such email but 
luckily this time I decided to read it.

PLEASE prepend your email Subject lines with [GO friends] or 
something similar and in addition take the time to compose a 
descriptive Subject line.

GO webmaster: could something similar be added to the web page that 
describes the GO Friends list?
