- Hi Len and All,
Please read the first section here if you do not want to read this
post. The rest explains why we need to keep the discussion to
NoteTab in reply to Len's post.
There are a few things we have to continually mention and there
are reasons why we do which have mentioned quite a few times, but
I will not go into that other than to mention what they are:
1. No attachments
2. Delete text that is not needed to understand your reply
3. Keep the discussion to NoteTab
4. Do not post Clips to the Basic List

than it would have been had we kept posting Clips to the Basic
list. I don't make up these rules to be a hard nose or for the
fun of it. It is not the easiest job trying to keep everybody
I have run over a half dozen lists now for 2-3 years and have out
found some things that help make them run smoother. One is to
keep the list discussion to whatever the list is made up for.
With 400 members and an "anything goes list" we would have a mess
on our hands in no time. Many people would sign off before you
know it. Rules like I have in the Welcome Letter (that are not
always read) would have to be made if one wanted a list again.
People sign on mailing lists, because they want to get info about
what the list is designed for. A large percentage of them do not
want a lot of extra mail about different topics. It is not fair
to them for us to send them non related material. They normally
get frustrated and sign off the list.
I am certainly all for helping somebody with any problem I can.
The problem is if somebody posts a non related question it in
turn can branch out to who knows how many posts on one or more
threads (a group of posts under the same subject header).
We cannot be everything to everybody unfortunately, especially on
a list this size. Now, the Ntb-HTML list is a different story,
because it has a small amount of members, at the present, I will
give more liberty on it.
I really don't like making these kind of posts either, because
they only open the door for more comment that most people don't
want to hear. They want NoteTab discussion and that's it.
So, that is an invitation to write me in private eMail at anytime
if you disagree with this post or any other posts I need to make
in the future. Thank you for your support!
