Appropriate Subject Lines
- To all Off Topic users.
Jan Rosenstreich just spent a lot of time and effort putting together an excellent post about Home network security to add to what several other folks contributed and it is all in a thread entitled "really offtopic"
6 months from now most of us will be hard pressed to go to the archives and find Jan's excellent post and use it as a reference.
(and yes I am familiar with searching the archives but not everyone on the list is)
I would remind everyone to remember Jody's pleas (and now mine) for us to use Subject Lines that pertain to the subject matter and if someone else forgets to, then when you reply, just change the subject line to something appropriate or if the direction of the thread changes, change the subject line accordingly.
I'm sure you all have seen dozens of posts with the Subject Line of "Help" or something like "really offtopic" and a week later it is meaningless and is soon deleted.
I am reposting Jan's post with a fitting Subject Line for those who might one day find it a valuable reference.
Thanks Jan for taking the time to put that info together for those who are starting to play with LAN's and for those who will be in the future.
Thank You all in advance.
