PPL posting netiquette and related concerns Members, Please Read
- Please make sure your postings fit the scope of this group site (as
indicated in the group description):
PPLetterpress is a forum and clearinghouse on studio-letterpress and
letterpress-related typography. While the subject focus is on printing
with digital type and the photopolymer plate process, the group site
also encompasses other related investigative and exploratory printing
and typographic techniques, as well as historical and contemporary
letterpress practices and concerns.
Use an appropriate descriptive subject header (no blanks or daily
digest headers). If you are cross-posting across several lists or
forwarding a message indicate this in the subject header.
Please consider your fellow group members when posting. Stay on topic
and avoid posting privately-intended replies to the entire group. If
you are replying to a post remove all unnecessary commentary, Yahoo
add-ons, and remnants of previous posts to the thread. The moderators
will remove unsubstantial postings such as blank replies, duplicates,
spam, automated responses, me toos, as well as off subject and
frivolous chat. Repeat violators will be put on moderated status.
Please refrain from posting equipment for sale items not your own,
such as ebay or craigslist referrals.
DO NOT post virulent personal attacks against another member or
messages intended to disrupt the group. Sniping and other antagonistic
posting practices will not be tolerated. Offenders will be subject to
removal from the group. Note also that contacting other group members
off list for the purpose of solicitation or harassment is a violation
of the Yahoo! TOS and could result in the loss of your Yahoo ID and
other legal action.
Please do not conduct business transactions via posting. If you have a
product or service for sale that fits within the parameters of the
group's intention you may certainly announce this but transactions
should be kept private. Note: We have a Files feature that allows
members to upload PDFs and other downloadable files of materials and
equipment for sale, book announcements, and the like. There is also a
Photos feature that allows members to upload image files (gifs, jpegs)
they would like to share.
DO NOT post group-related problems to the membership. Instead, contact
and we will do our best to help you.
Note that e-mail attachments or incorporated images are not allowed
and are stripped automatically from any postings. Use the Files or
Photos features to upload materials you would normally attach to an
