your own) will not be tolerated -- period.
3. Important - DO
NOT post the anonymous jokes that circulate the net.
We all get them, and sometimes we even wrote 'em.
4. Profanity has
it's place - mostly in other discussions. Use it
sparingly. Excessive vulgarity falls in this same
category. Please don't embarrass us.
5. Spam will
NOT be tolerated either on or off the list. If you are here for the
express purpose of promoting some commercial venture, climb the
closest tree. We train our huntin’ dogs by dragging spammers in
front of them.

personal appearances, columns and other publications, however.
Practice Good Netiquette

regardless of how funny it is.

occasionally for comments
or critiquing is fine.

Posts and do not re-post the entire post you
are replying to. This is especially important to remember if you are
on digest. If you simply hit "reply" and start writing,
you may re-send the entire digest, and the rest of the members will
turn you into roadkill.
Discreet - What is said in the group should stay in the
group. What is said privately should stay private.
8. Please do not trash other YahooGroups no matter how
stupid they are. We would not like them talking bad about us, so we need to
extend the same courtesy.
