My address is still ejray -at- okway -dot- okstate -dot- edu -dot- If you
have problems or questions, mail to me, not to the
whole list. If you have comments about misdirected
messages, such as a database search, direct them to the
original poster or to me, not to the list. Sending them
to the list wastes everyone's time.

This is not a list for computer support questions.
Occasional tool-related questions aren't generally a
problem, but Windows, UNIX, or communication software
are not appropriate topics.

Not to be deliberately rude, but I can't find a nicer
way to say this other than:
If you are reading this message, these rules apply to

If you are so aware that something is inappropriate
that you say so, THEN PLEASE DON'T POST
IT. If you aren't sure where to post a query, please
ask me. I'd be happy to help.

I'm not terribly concerned about an isolated irrelevant
posting or accidental post--I am concerned about the
ensuing discussions which continue forever.

FYI, below are general posting policies for the list:

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.

Thank you.
