This (ADS-L in the subject line) came up a few months ago.  I was relieved
that it went nowhere, since for me , far from making the file easier to
sort, it means having to go in and remove the "ADS-L" from the subject if I
want to aggregate the posts on any paticular thread.  Ron Butters'  posts
all come labelled that way & end  up in their own corner regardless of real
subject, until I erase the offending label.  The mail filter can take the
ADS-L from other parts of the heading to send all ADS-L posts to one
