Subject: Welcome to the "Linuxers" mailing list (Digest mode)
> Welcome to the Linuxers at mm.ilug-bom.org.in mailing list! Welcome to
> the GNU/Linux User Group of Bombay (ilug-bom)!
> Now that you are a member you can read and post mails to the group.
> The messages have to be related to propogating, using,
> trouble-shooting, bug-fixing, of GNU/Linux operating system. Feature
> comparision of other operating systems and distributions is allowed,
> but restrain from BASHING. GNU/Linux is possibly the most friendly

> ILUG-Bom Mailing List participation Guidelines
> ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 1. Keep paragraphs and
> messages short and to the point. See that what you are writing is
> useful to the mailing list. If not, send it as a private message to
> the person. (Note that by default the mails go to the LIST) Please
> change the sender address appropriately before sending a personal
> 2. When quoting another person, edit out whatever isn't directly
> applicable to your reply. Don't let your mailing software
> automatically quote the entire body of messages you are replying to
> when it's not necessary. Take the time to edit any quotations down to
> the minimum necessary to provide context for your reply. Nobody likes
> reading a long message in quotes for the third or fourth time, only to
> be followed by a one line response: "Yeah, me too." Messages larger
> than 10k will not be posted immediately. Such messages will need the
> list admins approval.
> 3. Focus on one subject per message and always include a pertinent
> subject title for the message, that way the user can locate the
> message quickly. Also please include a suitable header in case of
> Commercial / Offtopic mails.
> 4. Capitalize words only to highlight an important point or to
> distinguish a title or heading. Capitalizing whole words that are not
> titles is generally termed as SHOUTING! *Asterisks* surrounding a word
> can be used to make a stronger point. Use the underscore symbol before
> and after the title of a book, i.e. _Linux Configuration And
> 5. Limit line length to approximately 65-70 characters and avoid
> control characters.
> 6. NEVER send chain letters to the mailing list. A mail
> simultaneously sent to more than 10 users will not reach the list.
> This is to eliminate possible spammers/bulk mailers to reach the list.
> 7. Be careful when using sarcasm and humor. Without face to face
> communications your joke may be viewed as criticism. When being
> humorous, use emoticons (smiley's) to express humor. (tilt your head
> to the left to see the emoticon smile) :-) = happy face for humor.
> 8. If a mail has offended you personally, please send a private
> message to the person expressing how you feel, instead of sending it
> to the mailing list.
> 9. Please remember that we have both male and female members. No
> gender abuse is allowed on the list, and do not include any gender
> specific slang in your posts.
> 10. Acronyms can be used to abbreviate when possible, however messages
> that are filled with acronyms can be confusing and annoying to the
> reader. Examples: IMHO = in my humble/honest opinion FYI = for your
> information BTW = by the way Flame = antagonistic criticism.
> http://www.jargon.org for more such acronymns.
> 11. Please provide URL's to articles wherever possible. Avoid cutting
> and pasting whole articles especially considering the fact that all
> may not be interested. In any case your posting maynot be more than
> 10k. Occassionally if you may have to send such a mail, post it, it
> will reach the members after the list admin approves it.
> 12. When using the mailing list for commercial purpose, please prefix
> the subject line with "COMMERCIAL".
> 13. Please *read all your mails before replying* to a mail. Probably
> someone has already answered to the mail.
> 14. Remember that most of the people are paying by the minute for
> their internet access. Hence please do not waste bandwidth.
> 15. Any violation to the above will be given a warning. 5 such
> warnings and the subscriber will be suspended from the mailing list
> for 15 days.
