And this rule should have an excemption for a subject starting with
"PATCH" or "[PATCH".  Fighting spam and bad manners makes sense.  But
one shouldn't go overboard and disallow good manners in the process.

This particular rule has annoyed me more than once.  I wouldn't be
surprised if others simply decided to go away and not contribute
