That's been discussed before, and nobody's really been in
favour of it. People are supposed to use the CHAT: token in subject
lines if the subject matter is off-topic. That said, it's a habit
most people haven't got into.
If you know how filters work in your mail client, it's easy to filter
emails using this.
