Dear Z Friends,
I see that the list had not been in hibernation after all! I was happy to
see so much recent activity.
Here is a friendly reminder to our membership that this list is NOT
monitored, that is, I do not vet messages before they are published to the
list. For this reason, I have tried to make the ground rules as clear as
possible so that members can use their own best judgement when posting.
Remember that the list is for the discussion of any topic related to Z. I
admit that the word 'related' may be a little elastic at times, but this is
a hobby after all. The list welcomes all points of view and we all enjoy a
debate. However, we must all take pains to keep our commentary as
impersonal as possible except when offering praise or congratulations. I
would hope that members use the following test as a guide before posting a
message in the heat of the moment...Ask yourself how you would react if you
were to receive 'your' message from someone else?
I've tried it and it has saved me from embarassment on a couple of
occasions. (it doesn't always work but I keep trying!)
Egroups allows members to subscribe and to unsubscribe from the member's log
in page. Although the moderator has the power to ban a member, I have had
no call to use such a draconian measure and I hope that such a situation
will not be forthcoming. You have complete control over your subscription
I hope that these observations will help clarify some points.
