I did set up a filter as you all indicated and only two of the many

But, my retentive-side would still like to see a prefix. :)

Here's vote against munging subject lines. It's an ugly fix for a non-problem. Filtering on the List-Id header works in every mail client that I use regularly.

I find munged headers to be useful for other than automated filtering -- often list traffic is lower-priority and I like to see what's from a mailing list and what isn't so that I can make a quicker decision whether to keep or not based on the visible subject. I don't think it's ugly, I think it's beautiful. So I unvote you. :-)
