Hey folks,

A couple of tips for working with (any) mailing list:

(1) Don't send HTML email. Some peoples' mail clients can't render it,
and even if they can, there's no guarantee it will come out the same.

(2) When you reply to a post, remember to reply to the list and not just
the original sender (unless you meant to).

(3) When replying to a post, you don't need to copy the whole digest if
there were other posts in that issue. Just quote the minimum needed for

(4) When you reply, remember to reply at the bottom and not on the top.
Top posting is generally not encouraged because it makes preservation of
chronological order difficult to follow for readers.

Your bro,
