Maybe we should make it a bit harder to submit to help & bug?

How about requiring that the message has a portion describing octave configuration. This portion would be manufactured by octave (by a function) any email not containing this portion would be rejected by the mailing list with a message describing how to add the portion, maybe even including the source for the function so that old versions could run them?

Is this reasonable in both requirements from users and the mailing system?

Help-octave mailing list

What if they are having problems even getting Octave running? Then they would be shunned even before they got a chance to get helped.
