      How Do I Unsubscribe from HRNET@OneList?
      ================================================================

      In order to remove yourself from the HRNET@OneList mailing list and
      stop receiving HRNET@OneList messages, send a blank e-mail message
      to:

      mailto:HRNET-unsubscribe@onelist.com

      You can do this easily by scrolling to the bottom of this message
      or any message you have received from HRNET@OneList. At the bottom
      of the message, you will find a list of e-mail addresses for the
      HRNET@OneList ListServ. Click on the address next to
      "Unsubscribe." A blank e-mail message should appear. Simply click
      the [SEND] button. When the ListServ receives your unsubscribe
      request, it will send you an e-mail asking you to confirm that you
      want to unsubscribe. Once you've confirmed, your name and e-mail
      address will be removed.

      ================================================================
      What Is HRNET@OneList?
      ================================================================

      HRNET@OneList is an electronic communication list server for those
      interested in human resource practice, research, or teaching. It
      is one attempt to create a successor to the HRNET ListServ at
      Cornell University, which provided the HR field with an invaluable
      communication and networking resource between 1993 and 1999. The
      goal of HRNET@OneList is to continue the tradition of the Cornell
      ListServ by establishing an unmoderated forum where the
      international community of HR practitioners, teachers, students,
      and consultants can conduct a free and open discussion of issues
      and problems of mutual concern.

      HRNET@OneList is a non-commercial enterprise. It was founded by a
      group of subscribers from the Cornell HRNET ListServ, and it
      continues to be run by a committee of ListServ members in the hope
      of continuing the tradition of open discussion and collegial
      cooperation established at Cornell. However, even though
      HRNET@onelist.com itself is non-commercial and there is no cost of
      membership, the services provided by OneList are paid for through
      the placement of small advertising blurbs at the end of each message
      posted to the list.

      All messages posted to HRNET@OneList are the opinions of the
      individual writers. Published citations to HRNET@OneList ListServ
      information should be considered "personal correspondence"
      and used only with the permission of those involved.

      ================================================================
      What Topics Are Appropriate for Discussing on HRNET@OneList?
      ================================================================

      By using HRNET@OneList, you can send and exchange questions,
      answers, pearls of wisdom, frustrations, and ideas with all the
      HRNET@OneList members at one time. Appropriate topics for posting
      to HRNET@OneList can include almost anything related to human
      resources, including policy questions, practical problems,
      theoretical quandaries, ethical dilemmas, research puzzles,
      statistical methods, or teaching techniques. Discussions range over
      the full scope of HR specialties, including recruiting, hiring,
      compensation, benefits, training, employee relations, performance
      management, organizational development, and the latest developments
      in employment law.

      Some people prefer observation to participation, and they can
      simply monitor the exchange of messages on HRNET@OneList for their
      own information (This is called LURKING, and it is perfectly
      acceptable ListServ behavior.) If you choose to "LURK", the
      HRNET@OneList ListServ will keep you informed of the issues being
      discussed and the "hot" topics of concern among your colleagues.

      ================================================================
      Can I Use HRNET to Advertise My Product or Service?
      ================================================================

      HRNET exists to promote the exchange of ideas and information between
      professional HR practitioners, HR academics and HR service providers.
      It does NOT exist to provide a channel for advertising products and
      services to its subscribers. HRNET@ONElist and its list of
      subscribers should not be used for commercial purposes or to perform
      proprietary work. Sending unsolicited advertisements to HRNET or its
      list of subscribers is considered 'spamming' and can be grounds for
      losing your HRNET membership. We consider 'spam' to include any
      message posted to HRNET purely for the personal gain of the author
      and offering nothing of value to the group other than the service or
      product being offered.

      Job postings, conference announcements, and the posting of articles
      and essays are acceptable as long as they are kept short and are
      clearly identified in the subject line of the message. Such postings
      may contain a link to a web page or email address where additional
      information or the full text of an article may be found. (Articles
      should not be posted to HRNET without the permission of the copyright
      holder.) Vendors are welcome to tell subscribers about the services
      or products that they offer when doing so in the context of a
      relevant professional discussion on the list. In order to be
      acceptable, a message posted to the list must offer some information
      of value to subscribers beyond the product or service being
      advertised.

      New subscribers to HRNET are encouraged to spend some time "lurking"
      on the list in order to get a sense of the kind of traffic other
      subscribers are comfortable with. Subscribers who are unsure whether
      a message they wish to post to the list is appropriate may ask the
      coordinators for advice. Subscribers who believe they have received
      spam through HRNET or as a result of their HRNET membership should
      send an email to the list coordinators. The coordinators may be
      reached at: HRNET-owner@....

      Subscribers of HRNET are reminded that, under United States law, it
      is unlawful "to use any telephone facsimile machine, computer, or
      other device to send an unsolicited advertisement" to any "equipment
      which has the capacity (A) to transcribe text or images (or both)
      from an electronic signal received over a regular telephone line onto
      paper." The law allows individuals to sue the sender of such illegal
      "junk mail' for $500 per copy. Most states will permit such actions
      to be filed in Small Claims Court.

      ================================================================
      How Do I Post Messages to HRNET@OneList?
      ================================================================

      In order to post a message to HRNET@OneList simply send an e-mail
      message to:

      HRNET@...

      When a subscriber sends a message to HRNET@..., the message
      is distributed over the Internet or an electronic mail system to all
      of the ListServ members.

      ================================================================
      How Do I Reply to Messages Posted at HRNET@OneList?
      ================================================================

      When a member receives an HRNET@OneList message and clicks on his or
      her [REPLY] button, an answer is sent directly to the author of the
      original message. However, by clicking "Reply to all" or by adding
      the HRNET@... address to the reply, a member can send the
      reply to the entire ListServ at once.

      But before clicking the [SEND] button on that reply, check the
      address to be certain it's going to the intended location (person or
      group). It can be very embarrassing if you reply incorrectly and
      post a personal message intended for an individual to the entire
      discussion group.

      ================================================================
      What Are the Rules for Posting to HRNET@OneList?
      ================================================================

      1. Do not use HRNET@OneList for commercial purposes or to perform
      proprietary work.

      2. Do not use HRNET@OneList or the HRNET@OneList list of members to
      send unsolicited advertisements. This activity is termed "spamming"
      on the Internet and can be grounds for losing your HRNET@OneList
      membership. Under United States law, it is unlawful "to use any
      telephone facsimile machine, computer, or other device to send an
      unsolicited advertisement" to any "equipment which has the capacity
      (A) to transcribe text or images (or both) from an electronic
      signal received over a regular telephone line onto paper." The law
      allows individuals to sue the sender of such illegal "junk mail"
      for $500 per copy. Most states will permit such actions to be
      filed in Small Claims Court.

      3. Never send chain letters through the Internet. Sending them can
      cause the loss of your Internet Access.

      4. Messages posted to HRNET@OneList should concern some aspect of
      the practice of human resources management as outlined in the
      "Description of HRNET@OneList" section above. It is considered
      poor ListServ netiquette to post off-topic messages.

      5. Do not post copies of copyrighted material to HRNET@OneList
      without the permission of the copyright holder.

      6. Never assume your e-mail messages are private or that they can
      be read only by yourself or the recipient. Never send something
      that you would mind seeing on the evening news.

      7. Resist the temptation to "flame" others on the list. "Flaming"
      refers to directing hostile or personal remarks toward other
      members of the list with the intent of insulting or provoking them.
      Remember that these discussions are "public" and meant for
      constructive exchanges. Treat the others on the list as you would
      want them to treat you.

      8. When you first join the list, it is a good idea to "lurk" for a
      few days (i.e., monitor the messages being posted) to get a feel
      for what common questions are asked, and what topics are deemed
      off-limits. When you feel comfortable with the group, then start
      posting.

      ================================================================
      How Do I Write Good HRNET@OneList Messages?
      ================================================================

      1. Keep messages and paragraphs short and to the point.

      2. Focus on one subject per message, and always include a
      descriptive subject title, such as "Question about interview
      validity studies" or "Call for Papers, OD Conference", or "Position
      Available at Company Name", or "Survey: Your input on
      telecommuting requested", etc. A good subject line will make it
      easier for HRNET@OneList users to locate your message quickly.

      3. SUBSCRIBERS TO THE DAILY DIGEST VERSION should change the
      subject title of their replies to HRNET@OneList messages. When you
      click your [REPLY] button, most email programs will automatically
      title any reply as "[HRNET] Digest Number xxx." Readers of
      HRNET@OneList will not be able to tell which of the postings for
      that day you are replying to. Consequently, many readers will
      simply skip over your message.

      4. When replying to someone else's message, consider whether your
      message would be better read immediately by the entire list or as
      part of a summary posted by the original author.

      5. Please be sure the header of your postings includes your name
      and e-mail address.

      6. In the first two lines of your message, please indicate the
      topic, and a brief description of the message content, such as
      "Here is my personal opinion about ... ", or "Here is a list of
      studies and references that I can suggest regarding ...", or "XYZ
      Company has a position available for an entry-level HR assistant".

      7. Include your signature at the bottom of e-mail messages when
      communicating with people who may not know you personally or
      broadcasting to a dynamic group of subscribers. Your signature
      footer should include, at a minimum, your name. We recommend that
      you also include your position, affiliation and e-mail address.
      Optional information you also may want to include is your address
      and phone number. Your signature should not exceed 6 lines.

      8. When quoting another person, edit out whatever isn't directly
      applicable to your reply. Don't let your mailing or Usenet
      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."

      9. SUBSCRIBERS TO THE DAILY DIGEST VERSION OF HRNET@OneList should
      be particularly careful to edit unnecessary quotations from their
      replies to messages. It is considered very bad form to quote the
      entire daily digest in your reply to a single message.

      10. 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 and considered quite
      rude.

      11. Surround a word with *Asterisks* to make a stronger point. This
      is the e-mail equivalent of bold type.

      12. Use the underscore symbol before and after the title of a book,
      i.e. _The Wizard of Oz_.

      13. Limit line length to approximately 65-70 characters and avoid
      control characters.

      14. Be professional and careful what you say about others. E-Mail
      is easily forwarded.

      15. Cite all quotes, references and sources and respect copyright
      and license agreements.

      16. Keep in mind that HRNET@OneList includes members from many
      countries. Don't assume that they will understand a reference to
      TV, movies, pop culture, or current events in your country. If you
      must use the reference, please explain it. Don't assume that they
      understand geographical references that are local or national.

      17. Use discretion when forwarding a long mail message to
      HRNET@OneList. It's preferable to reference the source of a
      document and provide instructions on how to obtain a copy. If you
      must post a long message, warn the readers with a statement at the
      top of the mail message. Example: WARNING: LONG MESSAGE

      18. It is considered extremely rude to forward personal e-mail to
      mailing lists without the original author's permission.

      19. Do not send messages to the ListServ with return receipts.

      20. Do not send attachments to the ListServ. The OneList
      ListServer will delete any attachments before forwarding your
      message. You may use the Shared Files section of the OneList web
      page to post files you wish to share with other HRNET@OneList
      members.

      21. Be careful when using sarcasm and humor. Without face to face
      communications your joke may be viewed as criticism. When being
      humorous, use emoticons to express humor. (tilt your head to the
      left to see the emoticon smile) :-) = happy face for humor

      22. Acronyms can be used to abbreviate when possible, however
      messages that are filled with acronyms can be confusing and
      annoying to the reader. Examples of acronyms commonly used on
      HRNET@OneList are:
      IMHO= in my humble/honest opinion
      FYI = for your information
      BTW = by the way
      Flame = antagonistic criticism

      ================================================================
      How Can I Read the HRNET@OneList Archive of Messages?
      ================================================================

      You can view the archive of past messages on the HRNET web site.
      You can log onto the web site by pointing your browser to:

      http://www.onelist.com/community/HRNET

      You will need the OneList password assigned to you when you
      subscribed to HRNET@OneList. (If you've forgotten your password,
      see the instructions for "How Do I Retrieve My HRNET@OneList
      Password?" later in this message.)

      At the HRNET web page, click on the "Messages" link on the left side
      of the screen. This will show you recent HRNET@OneList messages as
      well as a search box for archive messages. Clicking on the
      "Archive" link at the left of the screen will take you to the
      complete archive of messages.

      The archive stores messages in digests of 25 or fewer messages. The
      digests are listed in order of creation along with the date on which
      the digest was created. If you can't remember when the message you
      are searching for was posted, use the search box at the top of the
      screen to help you find it.

      Type a word or phrase in the search box describing the message or
      topic you want to find. Click the [SEARCH] button, and OneList will
      display a list of just those digests that contain the word or phrase
      you are searching for.

      To read any of the digests, click on the link to it in the archive
      list.

      To save a copy of the digest to your hard drive, display the digest
      and use the "Save As... " option on your browser's File menu.

      ================================================================
      How Do I Suspend HRNET@OneList Messages When I Go On Vacation?
      ================================================================

      When you go on vacation or leave your office on a business trip it
      is important to suspend your HRNET@-OneList mailings. Many people
      on vacation use an autoresponder program to automatically reply to
      email messages they receive. These autoresponder messages clog up
      HRNET@OneList with unnecessary messages and can create infinite
      loops that generate hundreds of messages.

      There are two methods for suspending your HRNET@OneList mailings:

      * You can change your HRNET@OneList member settings from "Send
      email messages" or "Send a daily digest" to "Don't send me email,
      I'll read the messages at the Web site." You can find
      instructions on how to change your member settings below.

      * You can unsubscribe from the list when you go on vacation by
      sending a blank email message to "HRNET-unsubscribe@...".
      (See the instructions for unsubscribing from the list in an
      earlier section.) When you return to work, you can restart
      your mailings by sending another blank email to
      "HRNET-subscribe@...".

      ================================================================
      How Do I Change My Member Settings for HRNET@OneList?
      ================================================================

      When you subscribed to HRNET@OneList, certain default values were
      assigned to your OneList member settings. For example:

      -- You were assigned a password by OneList.
      -- You were set up to receive individual emails instead of a
      daily digest of messages.
      -- Your user name and e-mail address were listed in the
      HRNET@OneList member directory.

      In order to change these member settings, point your web browser
      to: http://www.onelist.com/community/HRNET

      You can easily do this by clicking on the URL listed at the bottom
      of this message. This link will take you to the HRNET@OneList
      Main Page.

      Once you have arrived at the Main Page, click on the My ONElist
      tab. Then, click the link for Member Profile. A page listing all
      of the settings for your membership will appear. You can change
      any of your member settings from this page. To change your e-mail
      address or your password, click the text links on this page. To
      change any of your other member settings, click the [EDIT] button
      at the bottom of the page.

      ================================================================
      How Do I Retrieve My HRNET@OneList Password?
      ================================================================

      Go to www.onelist.com and click on the "Forgot password" button on
      the left side of the screen. You will then be asked to enter your
      email address and click on "send email" button. A new password
      will be sent to the email address you are subscribed with. After
      receiving the email, you can log in and change the password to your
      choice and click on "Save Changes."

      ================================================================
      How to Get Technical Assistance on HRNET@OneList
      ================================================================

      The HRNET@... address is for discussion of human resource
      topics only. Questions about the technical operation of the
      HRNET@OneList ListServ, or any problems that you may encounter
      should be sent to the following address:

        to:

        mailto:HRNET-unsubscribe@onelist.com

        You can do this easily by scrolling to the bottom of this message
        or any message you have received from HRNET@OneList. At the bottom
        of the message, you will find a list of e-mail addresses for the
        HRNET@OneList ListServ. Click on the address next to
        "Unsubscribe." A blank e-mail message should appear. Simply click
        the [SEND] button. When the ListServ receives your unsubscribe
        request, it will send you an e-mail asking you to confirm that you
        want to unsubscribe. Once you've confirmed, your name and e-mail
        address will be removed.

        ================================================================
        What Is HRNET@OneList?
        ================================================================

        HRNET@OneList is an electronic communication list server for those
        interested in human resource practice, research, or teaching. It
        is one attempt to create a successor to the HRNET ListServ at
        Cornell University, which provided the HR field with an invaluable
        communication and networking resource between 1993 and 1999. The
        goal of HRNET@OneList is to continue the tradition of the Cornell
        ListServ by establishing an unmoderated forum where the
        international community of HR practitioners, teachers, students,
        and consultants can conduct a free and open discussion of issues
        and problems of mutual concern.

        HRNET@OneList is a non-commercial enterprise. It was founded by a
        group of subscribers from the Cornell HRNET ListServ, and it
        continues to be run by a committee of ListServ members in the hope
        of continuing the tradition of open discussion and collegial
        cooperation established at Cornell. However, even though
        HRNET@onelist.com itself is non-commercial and there is no cost of
        membership, the services provided by OneList are paid for through
        the placement of small advertising blurbs at the end of each message
        posted to the list.

        All messages posted to HRNET@OneList are the opinions of the
        individual writers. Published citations to HRNET@OneList ListServ
        information should be considered "personal correspondence"
        and used only with the permission of those involved.

        ================================================================
        What Topics Are Appropriate for Discussing on HRNET@OneList?
        ================================================================

        By using HRNET@OneList, you can send and exchange questions,
        answers, pearls of wisdom, frustrations, and ideas with all the
        HRNET@OneList members at one time. Appropriate topics for posting
        to HRNET@OneList can include almost anything related to human
        resources, including policy questions, practical problems,
        theoretical quandaries, ethical dilemmas, research puzzles,
        statistical methods, or teaching techniques. Discussions range over
        the full scope of HR specialties, including recruiting, hiring,
        compensation, benefits, training, employee relations, performance
        management, organizational development, and the latest developments
        in employment law.

        Some people prefer observation to participation, and they can
        simply monitor the exchange of messages on HRNET@OneList for their
        own information (This is called LURKING, and it is perfectly
        acceptable ListServ behavior.) If you choose to "LURK", the
        HRNET@OneList ListServ will keep you informed of the issues being
        discussed and the "hot" topics of concern among your colleagues.

        ================================================================
        Can I Use HRNET to Advertise My Product or Service?
        ================================================================

        HRNET exists to promote the exchange of ideas and information between
        professional HR practitioners, HR academics and HR service providers.
        It does NOT exist to provide a channel for advertising products and
        services to its subscribers. HRNET@ONElist and its list of
        subscribers should not be used for commercial purposes or to perform
        proprietary work. Sending unsolicited advertisements to HRNET or its
        list of subscribers is considered 'spamming' and can be grounds for
        losing your HRNET membership. We consider 'spam' to include any
        message posted to HRNET purely for the personal gain of the author
        and offering nothing of value to the group other than the service or
        product being offered.

        Job postings, conference announcements, and the posting of articles
        and essays are acceptable as long as they are kept short and are
        clearly identified in the subject line of the message. Such postings
        may contain a link to a web page or email address where additional
        information or the full text of an article may be found. (Articles
        should not be posted to HRNET without the permission of the copyright
        holder.) Vendors are welcome to tell subscribers about the services
        or products that they offer when doing so in the context of a
        relevant professional discussion on the list. In order to be
        acceptable, a message posted to the list must offer some information
        of value to subscribers beyond the product or service being
        advertised.

        New subscribers to HRNET are encouraged to spend some time "lurking"
        on the list in order to get a sense of the kind of traffic other
        subscribers are comfortable with. Subscribers who are unsure whether
        a message they wish to post to the list is appropriate may ask the
        coordinators for advice. Subscribers who believe they have received
        spam through HRNET or as a result of their HRNET membership should
        send an email to the list coordinators. The coordinators may be
        reached at: HRNET-owner@....

        Subscribers of HRNET are reminded that, under United States law, it
        is unlawful "to use any telephone facsimile machine, computer, or
        other device to send an unsolicited advertisement" to any "equipment
        which has the capacity (A) to transcribe text or images (or both)
        from an electronic signal received over a regular telephone line onto
        paper." The law allows individuals to sue the sender of such illegal
        "junk mail' for $500 per copy. Most states will permit such actions
        to be filed in Small Claims Court.

        ================================================================
        How Do I Post Messages to HRNET@OneList?
        ================================================================

        In order to post a message to HRNET@OneList simply send an e-mail
        message to:

        HRNET@...

        When a subscriber sends a message to HRNET@..., the message
        is distributed over the Internet or an electronic mail system to all
        of the ListServ members.

        ================================================================
        How Do I Reply to Messages Posted at HRNET@OneList?
        ================================================================

        When a member receives an HRNET@OneList message and clicks on his or
        her [REPLY] button, an answer is sent directly to the author of the
        original message. However, by clicking "Reply to all" or by adding
        the HRNET@... address to the reply, a member can send the
        reply to the entire ListServ at once.

        But before clicking the [SEND] button on that reply, check the
        address to be certain it's going to the intended location (person or
        group). It can be very embarrassing if you reply incorrectly and
        post a personal message intended for an individual to the entire
        discussion group.

        ================================================================
        What Are the Rules for Posting to HRNET@OneList?
        ================================================================

        1. Do not use HRNET@OneList for commercial purposes or to perform
        proprietary work.

        2. Do not use HRNET@OneList or the HRNET@OneList list of members to
        send unsolicited advertisements. This activity is termed "spamming"
        on the Internet and can be grounds for losing your HRNET@OneList
        membership. Under United States law, it is unlawful "to use any
        telephone facsimile machine, computer, or other device to send an
        unsolicited advertisement" to any "equipment which has the capacity
        (A) to transcribe text or images (or both) from an electronic
        signal received over a regular telephone line onto paper." The law
        allows individuals to sue the sender of such illegal "junk mail"
        for $500 per copy. Most states will permit such actions to be
        filed in Small Claims Court.

        3. Never send chain letters through the Internet. Sending them can
        cause the loss of your Internet Access.

        4. Messages posted to HRNET@OneList should concern some aspect of
        the practice of human resources management as outlined in the
        "Description of HRNET@OneList" section above. It is considered
        poor ListServ netiquette to post off-topic messages.

        5. Do not post copies of copyrighted material to HRNET@OneList
        without the permission of the copyright holder.

        6. Never assume your e-mail messages are private or that they can
        be read only by yourself or the recipient. Never send something
        that you would mind seeing on the evening news.

        7. Resist the temptation to "flame" others on the list. "Flaming"
        refers to directing hostile or personal remarks toward other
        members of the list with the intent of insulting or provoking them.
        Remember that these discussions are "public" and meant for
        constructive exchanges. Treat the others on the list as you would
        want them to treat you.

        8. When you first join the list, it is a good idea to "lurk" for a
        few days (i.e., monitor the messages being posted) to get a feel
        for what common questions are asked, and what topics are deemed
        off-limits. When you feel comfortable with the group, then start
        posting.

        ================================================================
        How Do I Write Good HRNET@OneList Messages?
        ================================================================

        1. Keep messages and paragraphs short and to the point.

        2. Focus on one subject per message, and always include a
        descriptive subject title, such as "Question about interview
        validity studies" or "Call for Papers, OD Conference", or "Position
        Available at Company Name", or "Survey: Your input on
        telecommuting requested", etc. A good subject line will make it
        easier for HRNET@OneList users to locate your message quickly.

        3. SUBSCRIBERS TO THE DAILY DIGEST VERSION should change the
        subject title of their replies to HRNET@OneList messages. When you
        click your [REPLY] button, most email programs will automatically
        title any reply as "[HRNET] Digest Number xxx." Readers of
        HRNET@OneList will not be able to tell which of the postings for
        that day you are replying to. Consequently, many readers will
        simply skip over your message.

        4. When replying to someone else's message, consider whether your
        message would be better read immediately by the entire list or as
        part of a summary posted by the original author.

        5. Please be sure the header of your postings includes your name
        and e-mail address.

        6. In the first two lines of your message, please indicate the
        topic, and a brief description of the message content, such as
        "Here is my personal opinion about ... ", or "Here is a list of
        studies and references that I can suggest regarding ...", or "XYZ
        Company has a position available for an entry-level HR assistant".

        7. Include your signature at the bottom of e-mail messages when
        communicating with people who may not know you personally or
        broadcasting to a dynamic group of subscribers. Your signature
        footer should include, at a minimum, your name. We recommend that
        you also include your position, affiliation and e-mail address.
        Optional information you also may want to include is your address
        and phone number. Your signature should not exceed 6 lines.

        8. When quoting another person, edit out whatever isn't directly
        applicable to your reply. Don't let your mailing or Usenet
        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."

        9. SUBSCRIBERS TO THE DAILY DIGEST VERSION OF HRNET@OneList should
        be particularly careful to edit unnecessary quotations from their
        replies to messages. It is considered very bad form to quote the
        entire daily digest in your reply to a single message.

        10. 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 and considered quite
        rude.

        11. Surround a word with *Asterisks* to make a stronger point. This
        is the e-mail equivalent of bold type.

        12. Use the underscore symbol before and after the title of a book,
        i.e. _The Wizard of Oz_.

        13. Limit line length to approximately 65-70 characters and avoid
        control characters.

        14. Be professional and careful what you say about others. E-Mail
        is easily forwarded.

        15. Cite all quotes, references and sources and respect copyright
        and license agreements.

        16. Keep in mind that HRNET@OneList includes members from many
        countries. Don't assume that they will understand a reference to
        TV, movies, pop culture, or current events in your country. If you
        must use the reference, please explain it. Don't assume that they
        understand geographical references that are local or national.

        17. Use discretion when forwarding a long mail message to
        HRNET@OneList. It's preferable to reference the source of a
        document and provide instructions on how to obtain a copy. If you
        must post a long message, warn the readers with a statement at the
        top of the mail message. Example: WARNING: LONG MESSAGE

        18. It is considered extremely rude to forward personal e-mail to
        mailing lists without the original author's permission.

        19. Do not send messages to the ListServ with return receipts.

        20. Do not send attachments to the ListServ. The OneList
        ListServer will delete any attachments before forwarding your
        message. You may use the Shared Files section of the OneList web
        page to post files you wish to share with other HRNET@OneList
        members.

        21. Be careful when using sarcasm and humor. Without face to face
        communications your joke may be viewed as criticism. When being
        humorous, use emoticons to express humor. (tilt your head to the
        left to see the emoticon smile) :-) = happy face for humor

        22. Acronyms can be used to abbreviate when possible, however
        messages that are filled with acronyms can be confusing and
        annoying to the reader. Examples of acronyms commonly used on
        HRNET@OneList are:
        IMHO= in my humble/honest opinion
        FYI = for your information
        BTW = by the way
        Flame = antagonistic criticism

        ================================================================
        How Can I Read the HRNET@OneList Archive of Messages?
        ================================================================

        You can view the archive of past messages on the HRNET web site.
        You can log onto the web site by pointing your browser to:

        http://www.onelist.com/community/HRNET

        You will need the OneList password assigned to you when you
        subscribed to HRNET@OneList. (If you've forgotten your password,
        see the instructions for "How Do I Retrieve My HRNET@OneList
        Password?" later in this message.)

        At the HRNET web page, click on the "Messages" link on the left side
        of the screen. This will show you recent HRNET@OneList messages as
        well as a search box for archive messages. Clicking on the
        "Archive" link at the left of the screen will take you to the
        complete archive of messages.

        The archive stores messages in digests of 25 or fewer messages. The
        digests are listed in order of creation along with the date on which
        the digest was created. If you can't remember when the message you
        are searching for was posted, use the search box at the top of the
        screen to help you find it.

        Type a word or phrase in the search box describing the message or
        topic you want to find. Click the [SEARCH] button, and OneList will
        display a list of just those digests that contain the word or phrase
        you are searching for.

        To read any of the digests, click on the link to it in the archive
        list.

        To save a copy of the digest to your hard drive, display the digest
        and use the "Save As... " option on your browser's File menu.

        How Do I Suspend HRNET@OneList Messages When I Go On Vacation?
        ================================================================

        When you go on vacation or leave your office on a business trip it
        is important to suspend your HRNET@-OneList mailings. Many people
        on vacation use an autoresponder program to automatically reply to
        email messages they receive. These autoresponder messages clog up
        HRNET@OneList with unnecessary messages and can create infinite
        loops that generate hundreds of messages.

        There are two methods for suspending your HRNET@OneList mailings:

        * You can change your HRNET@OneList member settings from "Send
        email messages" or "Send a daily digest" to "Don't send me email,
        I'll read the messages at the Web site." You can find
        instructions on how to change your member settings below.

        * You can unsubscribe from the list when you go on vacation by
        sending a blank email message to "HRNET-unsubscribe@...".
        (See the instructions for unsubscribing from the list in an
        earlier section.) When you return to work, you can restart
        your mailings by sending another blank email to
        "HRNET-subscribe@...".

        ================================================================
        How Do I Change My Member Settings for HRNET@OneList?
        ================================================================

        When you subscribed to HRNET@OneList, certain default values were
        assigned to your OneList member settings. For example:

        -- You were assigned a password by OneList.
        -- You were set up to receive individual emails instead of a
        daily digest of messages.
        -- Your user name and e-mail address were listed in the
        HRNET@OneList member directory.

        In order to change these member settings, point your web browser
        to: http://www.onelist.com/community/HRNET

        You can easily do this by clicking on the URL listed at the bottom
        of this message. This link will take you to the HRNET@OneList
        Main Page.

        Once you have arrived at the Main Page, click on the My ONElist
        tab. Then, click the link for Member Profile. A page listing all
        of the settings for your membership will appear. You can change
        any of your member settings from this page. To change your e-mail
        address or your password, click the text links on this page. To
        change any of your other member settings, click the [EDIT] button
        at the bottom of the page.

        ================================================================
        How Do I Retrieve My HRNET@OneList Password?
        ================================================================

        Go to www.onelist.com and click on the "Forgot password" button on
        the left side of the screen. You will then be asked to enter your
        email address and click on "send email" button. A new password

        receiving the email, you can log in and change the password to your
        choice and click on "Save Changes."
