[APD] Re: Desperate plea-- or-- the tiniest violin in the world

It means "Reply" or "Regarding." Remember back in the
old days of paper memos at work? (Me neither.)The
'Re:' line contained the subject matter the memo was
to discuss. I personally find one 're' helpful (more
than one is re-dundant, I agree) because I know that
there's new text and not a double-posting due to
server hiccup or other cyber-anomaly. 

I agree it would be fab if there were a more
"consistent" way of posting, but asking an entity such
as APD (I like to think of us as a loose confederation
of aquatic farmers, boldly growing what no one else
has grown before) to follow a uniform posting
procedure is, well, a bit institutional, wouldn't you
say? Someone could write some bylaws, but I'd probably
skim right over them! 
I will now Re-turn to reading the digest! 8)
