      Forum Rules

      This message, like the "Welcome Message", is sent automatically to new
      forum members, as well as being sent out automatically each month.

      The "Welcome Message" covers a lot of things, so many, in fact, that
      few people read it. The page you are now reading lists what to do about
      one thing that could really annoy you, and it lists three other things
      that really annoy the moderators.

      For yourself, if you find that you are overwhelmed by e-mails from the
      group, go to the group's home page. Click on the "Edit My Membership"
      button near the upper right corner of the page. Change your mail delivery
      option from "Individual e-mails" to "No e-mails" or "Special Notices only".

      Three things that bug the moderators (so be warned and avoid) are:

      1. Commercial or Advertising Posts:

      Don't post a message whose purpose is to get people to notice and/or
      purchase a product you are manufacturing or selling. Ours is not a
      commercial forum and you should not try to take advantage of our open
      posting policy to get free advertising.

      One exception: if you have personal astro equipment that you want to
      sell, you can mention it ONCE, and only once, on the forum, provided
      that you make it clear in your posting that all further correspondence
      about it is to be conducted off line.

      2. Failing to Edit your Replies:

      When you reply to a post, PLEASE edit down the length of the post you
      are replying to. Retain ONLY the point or issue that you are responding
      to. Whether you put your response at the top, interspersed with, or
      below the post is not nearly as important, for clarity, as is editing
      out the irrelevant parts of the message you are responding to.

      3. Personal or ad-hominem attacks:

      Arguments and disagreement occur: temperatures and tempers rise. Once
      the discussion morphs into personal attacks, a line has been crossed.
      Don't cross it.

      What will be done if these rules are broken? We're not sure yet, but it WILL
      be something appropriate. You'll see!
