Moderation: Quotations and Subject Lines
- A reminder to contributors about two stylistic points from the
guidelines for this list (<http://www.elvish.org/LambengolmorList/>):
1) Excessive quotation: Good replies should quote just enough of the
antecedent post(s) to give the context, but no more. And don't be
afraid to succinctly and accurately paraphrase rather than quote.
2) Accurate subject lines: Before you submit a post, make sure the
subject line accurately describes the content of your post. If it is a
reply to another post, but shifted in focus from that previous post,
then use the formula "New Subject (was Re: Old Subject)". Under no
circumstance should the subject be left to the Digest-form, which is
meaningless to everyone.
