 filtering for some users. Especially those that use subject lines to route
 plugin support requests on the forum into a support ticket tool.

 You know, I’d considered that, but didn’t think to question it since the
 blog name is represented in the sender. 😬

 I checked the email RFCs and did not find a hard length limit on the
 subject header. If we want to limit it, we get to set our own patterns.
 Advice varies on the web in my research here, too. I would think first 3
 or 4 words of [blog name] and 3 or 4 words of [forum title] would be

 Should we revert and put the blog name back at the front so existing email
 filters keep working?
