[R-sig-ME] Modifying the subject in replies

There are several messages on the list now that have a subject line
starting with

[R-sig-ME] [FORGED]

If your mail client is adding the `[FORGED]` to the subject line I would
appreciate it if you stopped its doing so. One of the first rules of
interacting on a mailing list is "Don't change the subject line".  Most
mail clients thread messages according to the subject line and by changing
it you ensure that the conversation is spread over multiple threads instead
of a single thread.  Changing the subject line to include alarming and
incorrect characterizations of the message is first class bush league
stuff.  (And, yes, "first class bush league" is a contradiction in terms.)
