o Edit Your Reply. You should use the copy/delete/paste commands
to include only relevant segments from the posting you are
replying to - it will save us many megabytes of bandwidth, and
will enable faster web access to Orchid's Message Archive.
o Send private Emails if you think your response is not for the
general interest of the list.
o Do not respond to Subscription / Un-subscription requests. The
list is programmed to bounce such messages, based on a keyword
match. Orchid's administration is responding to each request as
soon as it has been read. Please be patient!
o Do not send file attachments to the list without getting the
list's approval! It will be good Net-practice to describe the file
and send it privately only to those interested. Important files
can be uploaded to Ganoksin's free FTP site. Contact
email@example.com for more
o A descriptive subject line is a good way of helping list members
filter their Emails. Use [YAK] as part of the subject line if
your posting is off subject.
o The digest format is available for those who can not manage the
volume of the open forum.
