The Details of List Ettiquette
This list is a place to ask for help, express opinions, and share
experiences regarding Macintosh computers and software etc.
This list is ONLY for things directly related to Macintosh computing.
Do not send virus warnings to the list, they are usually hoaxes with
no merit. Macintosh viruses are so rare as to be non-existent.
Use clear and easy-to-interpret subject lines for your messages
A good example of a subject line might be "Laserwriter NT Paper Jam"
A bad example would be "Help, I can't print", or worse yet, "HELP"
When you explain a particular problem, tell the list as much relevant
detail as you can, this might include such things as computer model,
RAM configuration, operating system, software version, or other
relevant points which might help us help you solve the problem. Also
tell us what you have already done to try to solve the problem. Nobody wants to help someone who does't try to help themselves.
This list is unmoderated, which means that anyone who is subscribed
to the list may say anything to the other members of the list. We
expect that everybody will be civil and polite and strive for a good
quality of information dialogue. Don't make work for the List Mom.
Please keep personal or off-topic discussions off the list, and
please minimize the "thank you" and "me too" comments. If you have
personal comments to make to a list member, send them in private
When you reply to a message, trim the irrelevant information from the
previous posting, this might include footers, signatures or other
Strive for brevity. Long email messages are normally tedious.
Please place your reply AFTER the message you are responding to. This
makes it easier for others to follow the thread of discussion by
reading naturally down to the current dialog.
Please do not use html email; it is hard to read with some mail
programs. Plain text email can be read by everyone. Again, please do
not use html email.
Let's strive for a good signal-to-noise ratio on this list.
Again, welcome to the davismug list!
