Ask to stop unethical usage of 'RE' in email subjects

This petition had 6 supporters is sending email to their users asking to sign petition. In that email they are using 'RE' in subject of the email. This makes an impression that it is a reply to a previous email This is a tactic done by to increase the email open rate. But an organisation like doing this tactic is questionable. 

That said, common usage is that when "RE:" is the beginning of an email subject line it specifically relates to a reply, and using it otherwise will probably be confusing to email users, many of whom may not be familiar with the term's history or denotation.


Please sign this petition to ask to stop using this 'RE' tactic on users.
