E-mail Address Information:
Please be aware that changes in your e-mail address or your mail
server can result in disruption of posts received from the group. If
Yahoo detects a malfunctioning e-mail address it may stop sending you
postings and may remove you from the primary list. Yahoo will put
offenders on a temporary bouncing list. We will submit reactivation
requests for a limited time and Yahoo will attempt to re-contact you.
If, however, there has been no response from you after a number of
attempts to reactivate your membership, we will eventually delete you
from the group.

Netiquette And Other List Matters:
The Yahoo TOS (Terms of Service) forbids commercial use of group
sites. Please do not conduct business transactions via posting. If you
have a product or service for sale you may certainly announce this but
please try to do so in informational terms only.
Please do not post group-related problems to the membership. Instead,
and we will do our best to help you.
Please do not use HTML or "enhanced text format" when posting. There
are a number of reasons for this but primarily it is discouraged here
as it allows the host (Yahoo) to attach those annoying visual ads to
the recipient's mail.
Please make sure your postings fit the scope of this group site (as
indicated in the group description) and are appropriate. The
moderators will not hesitate to remove unsubstantial postings such as
blank replies, duplicates, "me toos", spam, junkmail, unsubscribes,
unverified virus warnings, and the like. Please do not post virulent
personal attacks against another member or messages intended to
disrupt the group. Offenders will be subject to removal from the
group. Off topic run-away threads or similar disrupution may result in
the imposition of a moderated cool-down period.
Please consider your fellow group members when posting. Stay on topic
and avoid posting personal replies to the entire group. If you are
replying to a post please remove all unnecessary commentary and
remnants of previous posts to the thread.
