Truncating long subject lines of mailing lists

If you subscribe to mailing lists, especially in digest mode, you'd find the subject line having a line like

name-of-list-Digest -date

And if the name is long, you'd see it scrolling to the right. If this is something which has to be remedied,like right now, :-)

you could add the following lines to the Group Parameters of the group.

((total-expire . t)
(gnus-list-identifiers "SAS-L Digest -")
(expiry-wait . 10))

Change the string highlighted to the subject line of the list of yours. In my case, all i now see is the date of the digest mails, which is all that I want.
