While updating a "how to find the FAQ" document that gets posted to my
home newsgroup, I included a reference to "" -- to my
surprise, I learned that FAQs are named from the FAQ's "Subject:" line...

Who or what references the "Archive:" line?

I've also managed to get multiple copies archived at rtfm, on account of
my making minor changes to this subject. I thought I was safe, and that
this info wasn't supposed to be static.

I was attempting to make the subject line clearer, if it was cut short (as
many news readers seem to do).

Mein Gott! What have I done?
