      This file contains the posting guidelines, or "house rules" for the
      Locost mailing list. It is auto-posted once a month to the list, and
      is sent to new arrivals when they subscribe. Please take a few moments
      to familiarise yourself with the following notes:

      1. The main subject is "Locosts". This means:- the building, sourcing of
      parts, discussion of laws as applied to the construction and other
      things in a similar vein. Off topic banter is permitted providing it is
      kept to a MINIMUM and it includes (O/T) in the subject line.

      2. Be mindful of other people's feelings. It is easy for a reader to
      mistake your "tone of voice" in an e-mail. If you are discussing a hot
      topic, hold the e-mail for a few hours after you've written it and
      reread it later. Be careful of areas that could be misinterpreted.

      3. Personal attacks are not permitted and will not be tolerated.

      4. Trolling, or deliberate attempts to disrupt the running of the list,
      whether by inflamatory postings or other means, will not be tolerated and
      will result in the offending member(s) having postings moderated, and
      if abuse continues, in the banning of that member from the group.

      5. Please consider your actions before replying to any obviously inflamatory posting, usually this is exactly what the original poster wants. The best course of action in these cases is to ignore the original message. The moderators will take responsibility for any actions taken against the original poster.

      6. Advertising - put AD or Advert in the subject line and keep it
      reasonably short and Locost/Seven oriented, that way people can filter
      out the ads if they don't want to see them. Keep the frequency of ads to
      a minimum.

      7. Where long conversations occur, by all means quote relevant portions
      of the original conversation you are responding to (to show the
      context), but please trim any unnecessary text.

      8. Viruses - the Internet is constantly being flooded with information
      about computer viruses and Trojans. However, interspersed among real
      virus notices are computer virus hoaxes. While these hoaxes do not
      infect systems, they are still time consuming and costly to handle.
      Please don't spread unconfirmed warnings about viruses and Trojans
      within the List. In the event that you receive a virus warning, go to
      one of the many anti-virus sites to check if they are indeed legitimate
      or in fact, a virus hoax.

      9. Remember that there are over 1500 members in this list, you don't
      need to answer every e-mail from other members. If you have direct
      experience with a discussed subject, then by all means answer it, but if
      you aren't sure or are only "guessing" leave it to others to answer -
      someone will know the answer.
