Default Topic Headings -- Revision??

I just responded to a question that was listed in the group "Ports and Packages." The message itself had no mention of any OS, and it turns out I gave a FreeBSD answer to an OpenBSD question.

While that always happens on occasion, I usually keep up with the site by viewing the new posts. There should be a way for a reader to distinguish which group the question falls into. I note that each BSD section has "Ports and Packages", and that this is the heading that is displayed. It would be *very* useful if this would be broken into something like "OBSD: Ports and Packages", "FBSD ..." and "Net..." or some such. That way the reader can know which of the parallel topics he or she is responding to.

I have a hard enough time keeping my foot out of my mouth...

Ok, I added Free-, Open-, and NetBSD to the forum titles.

Thanks -- that will help a lot. Undoubtedly I will still do it wrong in the future, but this will get me to notice most of them.
