messages to LISTSERV, please keep the following suggestions in mind. They will
help keep the group user-friendly for everyone.
Please include a subject
line in each posting (it's a good idea for ALL e-mail).
Keep each line in your
message shorter than 70 characters. Longer lines can cause problems with some

When replying to another
message, try to refrain from quoting entire messages. Paraphrasing or quoting
selectively is preferred. -At the end of your message, include your name and
your electronic mail address (this is your electronic "signature".) Because
it can be difficult to interpret e-mail addresses, you are encouraged to include
your institutional affiliation. -Long signatures are discouraged. They may

Be careful when replying

from an experienced friend or from the list owners is more appropriate than
a public flame.
DO NOT SHOUT. The use
of all uppercase letters is considered shouting, and therefore rude. Part
of the problem with all caps is that it is harder to read than mixed case.
The other problem is that since facial expression and tone of voice are missing
from electronic communication, some way to express strong opinions (both positive
and negative) is needed, so ALL CAPS has been designated.
