Staying on topic
Occasional off topic
emails are tolerated (10% maximum, please). Be courteous and put "non-[highways]"

Do not make personal attacks or flame other users
over the listserv.
Virus alerts, stupid crap, etc.
NEVER send a virus alert to the listserv. NEVER send
a "breaking announcement" to the listserv. Nearly every last one of those is a
fake, and we'll just rip you a new one if you sent it.
