Re:

So, some of you may have noticed that if you reply to a comment that has no subject, the subject box of your comment is pre-filled with "Re: " (including the space).

What do you think about it? (Personally, I think it's slightly annoying and that it looks ugly to see comment pages with lots of "Re:" subjects when people don't delete or replace that text.)

What's your opinion on the default "Re:" when you reply to comment without the subject?

I like it

How do you deal with this new default?

I leave the "Re:" in place if I don't have a specific subject in mind for my comment

I've never really worried about comment subjects; I don't use them so I ignore the default Re: when writing one of my own

Has this "Re:" caused problems in your email inbox (e.g. comment notifications filtered out as spam?)

No

Do you prefer "Re:" or "Reply to your comment" as the subject of an email comment notification when the comment had no subject of its own?
