Could everyone please stop putting cutesy emojis in the "Subject:" line of their emails?

I don't need visual cluttering in my inbox, and this is not compatible with text-only email clients.

Yes, I am an old fart.

And no, I won't put an emoji next to that previous sentence.

Case in point: try reading the following:

Subject: =?utf-8?Q?Your=20order=20is=20being=20shipped=20=F0=9F=8E=89?=

This whole UTF8 code salad for one (ONE) emoji in the Subject line. Sheesh.

@ParadeGrotesque To be honest I wonder why a text-only client would not render that. Sure not all terminals have emoji configured but they could be replaced with � and it would still be better than that encoded version.
