A lot of user's mailers were mangling the subject line of the former thread
above that Razer copied from whatever idiot edited the original article.
Eugen's mailer was the first to permanently corrupt the non-ascii quote
marks into literal '?' question marks.
To prevent that, people should check and set utf-8 / 2047 in your settings.
Or update software as needed to support standards like rfc2047
that have been in effect for more than 20 years.
