Actually, I'd rather see nothing. It just clutters up the message line to
me. If you just filter the messages into its own folder in your mail client,
then there is no benefit to seeing [slim]. Just my opinion, and I'm
certainly not complaining - I'm happy to get the messages however Slim
decides to format them.

Well, well... I think I agree with this one! First I was about to say
"it was better before..."
but I stopped myself...

There's loads of headers to choose from for filtering, so why bother...

so that those who don't filter can see at a glance. i dont care what it says,
just as long as it says something. Its like heading an off topic post with OT,
courtesy. Something short, relatively unique is all that is required. However,
shoudl it be decided to remove it, I wouldn't freak out either. I just can't
see the point in getting fired up over any particular way. I can still get the
messages and i can still read them. Keep with that and I'm happy :)
