[b-hebrew] idea to deal with crackpot ideas

When someone sends a crackpot idea to b-hebrew members, people who respond could change the subject by adding "crackpot idea:" in front of the subject, then scholars and others would know to avoid the email. This way a lot of the irritating discussions could be reduced for scholars who don't like them. I don't know if "crackpot idea :" is allowed. Maybe something less insulting like "non-scholarly idea:" before the subject would help. Or maybe "mental torture alert:"
 
Some of the irritating emails would get through to scholars, but maybe not as many.
