Yep.  I am subscribed to a number of mailing lists, and get a rather
large amount of email each day (don't get me started on the amount of
spam I get!), so it is unlikely that I would open one without a
specific query in the subject heading.  I have spent a number of years
as network and system admin for ISPs, so had the header read something
that referred to that I'dve been inclined to open it.

Not a criticism or a snub, just the way it is.
