[Stackless] About submissions to this list

Hi Christian,

There is one issue... and that is that what for you or me might seem like an
unrelated subject for the author there clearly is a link between the subject
and the body of the message. Though correcting the subject might not be a
bad plan rejecting the message might frustrate some of the mailing list
I would suggest informing the author that the subject and the body seem
unrelated and suggest a correction, rather then an outright reject.

Looking at the volume of the message on this list it cannot be a huge amount
of work to filter out the messages that do not meet the criteria and to
suggest a better subject. It would be a much friendlier way of dealing with
the seemingly unrelated subject and body messages.
