I second the notion and have a further suggestion. All posts should have
approved subject lines consisting of a nested set of categories. Only the
last item in the nest could be a new topic IFF it really was new. Anyone
creating a new subject line when it really wasn't new would be ejected from
the list. I'm sure Cynthia will support me on this.
Not being one to simply b-lather away without making a concrete and useful
recommendation, I will offer these subject lines to start the approved list:
