Now that you've brought it up, let me emphasize that a moment and
request that we all brach-off subjects _a lot_ more frequently.
I know it's easy to forget. I forget it all the time (and clearly so
does John ;-), but let's make a bit more of an effort.

Remember kids:
If you're changing the subject of a conversation, do everyone a favor
and change the subject of the message.

Then there's the matter of what do you do if the new subject is not
really about Emacs. To this matter, I quote a short snippet of what
John said on that thread, for those who might not have read it:

Yes, please.
