PLEA: Use Single Subject Heading!

I get TECHWR-L in digest form and I'm sure I'm not the only one whose
life would be made easier if people would all use a common subject head
for a single thread. For example, I was trying to follow the "Humor"
thread and had to chase down the following topic titles:

Humor in Manuals
CHAT Re: Humor
Professional Humor
Humor in documentation
Using Humor Judiciously
using humor, etc.
Humor done well - Steve Lane et. al.
Using Humor **** Judiciously ****

Could you please only change an original thread name if the thread has
wandered off the topic?

Thanks muchly,
