Comparing apples and oranges

I received an email from an industry group I’m subscribed too. Well two emails, with slightly different subject lines. I’ve met the person who normally sends the eBlasts through industry events. That was a point of intrigue, although not my point. Same person, different yet similar subject lines. Why do I even care or bothering to comment?
