Alexander's been sounding like a broken record for quite some time; same
complaint every day or so. Is there anyway for the powers-that-be to
have all subscribers read and agree to follow some sort of basic
'netiquette' when signing up?
Many newbies (and some oldies) likely don't have a clue when it comes to
basic netiquette. And blasting them on the mailing list is embarassing
and would be enough for me to unsubscribe if I were in their shoes. Of
course, if they've read and agreed to follow basic netiquette, they can
be flamed to your heart's content.
