Section 1 -- General Questions

        This posting contains answers to the following questions:
    1.1)  What is alt.backrubs about?
    1.2)  I have a question not answered here.  Should I post?
    1.3)  What does this acronym stand for?
    1.4)  Help! I'm new to this whole Usenet/'net thing
    1.5)  What must I know about anonymous posts?
    1.6)  What should I do about 'net abuse (spams, scams & advertisements)?
    1.7)  Does anyone discuss anything here anymore?

        Each question begins with `Subject:' on a line of its own.  Users
with suitably equipped newsreaders can automatically skip to the start of
the next question, e.g. trn will display the start of the question when you
press ^G (control-G).  Of course if your newsreader doesn't do this
automatically, you can still use a search command to find the next question.
        To find the answer to question 1.2 search for a line beginning with
`Q1.2)', there will be only one.

Section 1 -- General Questions

Subject:  What is the alt.backrubs newsgroup about?
Q1.1)   This newsgroup functions primarily as a place for discussion of
massage techniques and principles, and issues related to massage including
bodywork therapies, e.g. Rolfing.  Although you'd be wasting energy by
posting messages seeking sexual partners here, there have been some
interesting discussions about areas of overlap between massage and sex.
See the archive for collections of such postings.
        Details about the archive appear in question 5.1.2.  Question 5.2
has a list of other network resources, e.g. newsgroups, with related
material.  Of particular interest to professional massage therapists and
students is the BODYWORK mailing-list (see question 5.2.4 b).
