moderated Re: Weird message title in group activity log #bug

UTF-8 is not supported in email headers, including subject lines, as
everything in the header should be plain text. But for some reason I
have seen some GIO messages with UTF-8 subject lines.

It's a base64 encode. If you go to https://www.base64decode.org/ and
put the "UmU6IFJ1c3R54oCZcyBzaWRlIGVmZmVjdHM=" part of that message into
the upper box and hit the DECODE button, it translates to "Re: RustyTMs
side effects".

Chances are it shouldn't be written this way into the Group Activity
Log.
