KC: It's not customary to have any information in the subject that is
not present in elaborated form in the message body.

This sort of posting is more common on forums, where misguided
individuals ask full questions in thread titles with empty bodies or
"n/t" markings.

It's in my eyes very bad form to try to inflict a foreign style onto a
medium that has some deeply ingrained and _working_ guidelines (no top
posting, replies in-line, body contains all information).
