[GO friends] email etiquette

Hi David,

Thanks for the suggestion. We could certainly try that. One other 
possibility is that I could just put an automatic subject line into the 
mailto: links on the website. That should help at least some people to 
get the '[GO friends]' part into their subject line.

Thanks,

Jen
