While I agree with the rule not to use names in Subject lines, it has
been out-dated by modern search technology. If a name is anywhere in
the message, then a search will bring up all posts containing that

For a simple example, if you wanted to find out if Brian and xology
were ever mentioned together then a simple AND search brings up all
the cases.
