      Dear fellow Z enthusiasts,

      Here are some message posting guidelines designed to make our Z_Scale forum
      experience more enjoyable for one and all.

      1. Stay on topic and be courteous and respectful at all times in tone.
      Profanity or abusive language will result in the immediate deletion of the
      offending message and the author will be placed on probation (moderated message
      posting).

      2. Edit message length

      In our excitement to reply to a posting, we often write a short (or medium or
      long) reply and hit the SEND key. As multiple messages are replied to in the
      same manner, the length of the posting grows with the accumulated crud of
      repeated content. As Z-scalers, you know how much we hate crud!

      It is not difficult to take a few seconds to delete or highlight and delete
      redundant material in your replies. This extra effort will greatly reduce
      message length and the frustration many members experience when receiving these
      sometimes massive missives. Remember, many members do not have high speed
      connections and many pay for their connection time (that is not to say that
      high speed users appreciate wallowing through useless repetition).

      3. Avoid "one-liner" replies

      Unless we are conducting a poll, it is of little interest to the membership
      that you share the opinion of others in a reply to the group. Of course,
      incremental information is always welcome. A thank you note that includes how
      you plan to make use of information supplied to you by other members is also
      welcome. Please avoid one liners if at all possible.

      4. Include relevant material when replying

      Use your editing skills to include relevant text when replying. Cutting and
      pasting is very easy. Highlight the text and use the Ctrl-X or Ctrl-C
      combination to place the text into temporary computer memory. Position the
      cursor where you would like to insert the text and use Ctrl-V to insert it.

      Text removal is even easier: highlight text that you wish to remove and hit
      the delete key.

      5. Use descriptive message headers or titles

      It is often difficult to understand the content of a posting from the original
      title or header of the thread. If your posting represents a new subject or
      theme, please remember to change the message header to reflect the subject of
      your posting.

        Dear fellow Z enthusiasts,

        Here are some message posting guidelines designed to make our
        Z_Scale forum experience more enjoyable for one and all.

        1A. Ebay auction posts are not permitted. List members are familiar with
        Ebay and will hunt for goodies if they are so inclined. This does not
        preclude private for-sale announcements with requests for off-list replies.

        1. Stay on topic and be courteous and respectful at all times in tone.
        Profanity or abusive language will result in the immediate deletion of the
        offending message and the author will be placed on probation
        (moderated message posting).

                  It is not difficult to take a few seconds to delete or highlight and delete
                  redundant material in your replies. This extra effort will greatly reduce
                  message length and the frustration many members experience when
                  receiving these sometimes massive missives. Remember, many
                  members do not have high speed connections and many pay for their
                  connection time (that is not to say that high speed users appreciate
                  wallowing through useless repetition).

                  3. Avoid "one-liner" replies

                  Unless we are conducting a poll, it is of little interest to the membership
                  that you share the opinion of others in a reply to the group. Of course,
                  incremental information is always welcome. A thank you note that
                  includes how you plan to make use of information supplied to you by other
                  members is also welcome. Please avoid one liners if at all possible.

                  4. Include relevant material when replying

                  Use your editing skills to include relevant text when replying. Cutting and
                  pasting is very easy. Highlight the text and use the Ctrl-X or Ctrl-C
                  combination to place the text into temporary computer memory. Position
                  the cursor where you would like to insert the text and use Ctrl-V to insert it.

                  Text removal is even easier: Highlight text that you wish to remove and hit
                  the delete key.

                  5. Use descriptive message headers or titles

                  It is often difficult to understand the content of a posting from the original
                  title or header of the thread. If your posting represents a new subject or
                  theme, please remember to change the message header to reflect the
                  subject of your posting.

                    Dear fellow Z enthusiasts,

                    Here are some message posting guidelines designed to make our
                    Z_Scale forum experience more enjoyable for one and all.

                    1A. Ebay auction posts are not permitted. List members are familiar with
                    Ebay and will hunt for goodies if they are so inclined. This does not
                    preclude private for-sale announcements with requests for off-list replies.

                    1. Stay on topic and be courteous and respectful at all times in tone.
                    Profanity or abusive language will result in the immediate deletion of the
                    offending message and the author will be placed on probation
                    (moderated message posting).

                    2. Edit message length

                    In our excitement to reply to a posting, we often write a short (or medium
                    or long) reply and hit the SEND key. As multiple messages are replied to
                    in the same manner, the length of the posting grows with the
                    accumulated crud of repeated content. As Z-scalers, you know how much
                    we hate crud!

                    It is not difficult to take a few seconds to delete or highlight and delete
                    redundant material in your replies. This extra effort will greatly reduce
                    message length and the frustration many members experience when
                    receiving these sometimes massive missives. Remember, many
                    members do not have high speed connections and many pay for their
                    connection time (that is not to say that high speed users appreciate
                    wallowing through useless repetition).

                          Text removal is even easier: Highlight text that you wish to remove and hit
                          the delete key.

                          5. Use descriptive message headers or titles

                          It is often difficult to understand the content of a posting from the original
                          title or header of the thread. If your posting represents a new subject or
                          theme, please remember to change the message header to reflect the
                          subject of your posting.

                          Dear fellow Z enthusiasts, Here are some message posting guidelines designed to make our Z_Scale forum experience more enjoyable for one and all. 1A. Ebay

                            Dear fellow Z enthusiasts,

                            Here are some message posting guidelines designed to make our
                            Z_Scale forum experience more enjoyable for one and all.

                            1A. Ebay auction posts are not permitted. List members are familiar with
                            Ebay and will hunt for goodies if they are so inclined. This does not
                            preclude private for-sale announcements with requests for off-list replies.

                            1. Stay on topic and be courteous and respectful at all times in tone.
                            Profanity or abusive language will result in the immediate deletion of the
                            offending message and the author will be placed on probation
                            (moderated message posting).

                            2. Edit message length

                            In our excitement to reply to a posting, we often write a short (or medium
                            or long) reply and hit the SEND key. As multiple messages are replied to
                            in the same manner, the length of the posting grows with the
                            accumulated crud of repeated content. As Z-scalers, you know how much
                            we hate crud!

                            It is not difficult to take a few seconds to delete or highlight and delete
                            redundant material in your replies. This extra effort will greatly reduce
                            message length and the frustration many members experience when
                            receiving these sometimes massive missives. Remember, many
                            members do not have high speed connections and many pay for their
                            connection time (that is not to say that high speed users appreciate
                            wallowing through useless repetition).

                            3. Avoid "one-liner" replies

                            Unless we are conducting a poll, it is of little interest to the membership
                            that you share the opinion of others in a reply to the group. Of course,
                            incremental information is always welcome. A thank you note that
                            includes how you plan to make use of information supplied to you by other
                            members is also welcome. Please avoid one liners if at all possible.

                            4. Include relevant material when replying

                            Use your editing skills to include relevant text when replying. Cutting and
                            pasting is very easy. Highlight the text and use the Ctrl-X or Ctrl-C
                            combination to place the text into temporary computer memory. Position
                            the cursor where you would like to insert the text and use Ctrl-V to insert it.

                            Text removal is even easier: Highlight text that you wish to remove and hit
                            the delete key.

                            5. Use descriptive message headers or titles

                            It is often difficult to understand the content of a posting from the original
                            title or header of the thread. If your posting represents a new subject or
                            theme, please remember to change the message header to reflect the
                            subject of your posting.
