Q: Who is responsible for the information posted to the
list, and who controls what gets posted?
A: The listowner and Oklahoma State University are not
responsible for anything posted to the list. The list is public
and unmoderated, so people who choose to post claim full
responsibility for anything posted under their respective
addresses and userids. The POSTMASTER@<whatever the address is>
is the only other person with any control over individual
postings from any userid.

Q: What is STC and how do I contact them?
A: STC is the Society for Technical Communication, and is
main professional organization for technical
and scientific communicators. Any questions, comments
or suggestions for STC should go to:

but some aren't.

this posting?
A: To Eric, the listowner, of course. EJRAY -at- OKWAY -dot- OKSTATE -dot- EDU


GUIDELINES FOR POSTING MESSAGES:
(from WINHLP-L owner George Byrnes byrnes -at- admin -dot- humberc -dot- on -dot- ca)
(Thanks to Christopher Salter for these suggestions)

1. If you have something to contribute to a discussion, please try
to post to the list rather than respond via private email. List
subscribers other than the one who asked the original question will
be interested in reading your response.

2. Questions concerning the administration of the list should be
emailed privately to the list administrator and not to the list
itself. The exception to this is if you are raising a question
that you feel should be discussed by all list subscribers.

3. If you receive a post via the list which you feel is inappropriate
and wish to say so, please do so by private email.

4. If you wish to thank subscribers for their assistance, a courtesy
which is appreciated, please do so by private email unless you
have some feedback which will be of interest to all subscribers.

5. To assist in the use of private email when appropriate, please
try to include your email address in the body of any list
contribution you make.

6. Forwarding questions from people who for whatever reason do not
have access to the list is more than acceptable. It's all grist
for the mill.

(end of message from Byrnes)

Part 1:
* If it is about technical communication and of general
interest, post it.
* If it is about technical communication and humorous,
post it.

Part 2:
* If it doesn't relate to technical communication,
don't post it.
* If it is a personal message to a single subscriber,
don't post it. Even if mail to that person bounces.
* If you aren't sure, don't post it.
* If it relates to language use but not technical
communication, it probably isn't appropriate.
* If it continues an irrelevant thread in any way
(rebuttal, rebuke, rerun, revision, remark), don't
post it.

Part 3:
* Direct all commentary about this message to my
address, not the list.
