Thank you for disabling it! Also, I agree, the Request, Closed, etc
stuff is also rather superfluous in some regards. But that at least
helps to determine whether the email is one I can archive immediately
or not (such as something that's been closed or abandoned), so perhaps
there is some utility with it? I do agree that it distracts from the
subject line, unfortunately.
