It's probably just better to put a marker in the subject. Given the
number of reactions to the articles posted, I'd say that they're read,
and you're hardly running a newsletter.

As a loose arrangement, I'd suggest:

[NEWS] or [news] for news article stuff
[HELP] or [help] for requests for help

I'm not going to worry about covering the cyclic cases, or anything
else: just use your head.

If people get sick of seeing them, they know how to use their
mailclient's killfile[1]: you just need to meet them partway.


[1] - For those who don't know: a killfile refers to using a filter to
remove or just not display certain messages. This is an old UNIX thing
from back in the heyday of Usenet.
