We at DML Central would also like to emphasize a point made in the
Administrivia, under Section 10a: "Why you shouldn't post on things you don't
know much about."
And, particularly at times like now when the
chatter is high, please try to filter your
participation. If you don't know a lot about a
subject, don't try to answer questions about
it. If a response you're writing is not likely
to be of general interest, send that response to
the sender of the original message rather than
to the whole list. If you find yourself writing
to the list several times in a day, try to
remember that the list doesn't exist just to
hear your opinions.
We would rather not have wrong information perpetuated in the archives.
