The Vanagon Mailing List goes to people from all over the world and of all ages. For this reason, we strive to maintain some decorum on the list. While many of us swear like drunken sailors when working on our cars, we don't use strong or offensive language on the list. Please be respectful of other list members, even if you think they're not being respectful of you. Debate, but avoid arguments. Take the high road. Set an example. Make your momma proud.
When you do encounter a list member behaving badly, please don't unlock your (virtual) gun closet and get all vigilante. That's the job of the list moderators, and they are trained professionals. If you need to do something, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll deal with the problem.
The Vanagon Mailing List has been around for a while and its citizens are fairly net.savvy. Bear that in mind before you forward something from an archive. In particular, please avoid the following:
Please note that most if not all of these things are considered bad netiquette on the Internet, and that doing them risks your getting a severe frowning upon.
