This FAQ is posted in four parts for the following reasons:

      1.    It's easier to follow.
      2.    It's easier for me to edit several small files than one large=
      3.    It will be easier for you to download updates.  If I make one
            change in one section, you can download the appropriate =
            rather than one large file.
      4.    It seems more "official".

I have set up a web site so that this FAQ can be accessed whenever =
The address is as follows:

Right now, the latest version of the FAQ is available there in ASCII text
form, with an HTML version forthcoming.  It is also posted to =
news.answers and
alt.answers and is archived and accessible through FTP (see below).

1.1-> Formatting
This document is laid out a certain way.  It might look funny on your =
If you are looking at it using a text editor that uses a fixed system =
font and
has an 80 column display, it should look fine.  Otherwise, lines and such=
not appear properly.  If you're using a word processor such as =
WordPerfect or
Microsoft Word, you can get the document layout right by setting your =
left and
right page margins to 1 inch, and using the Courier New font, at a 10 =
size.  This will also allow you to print the FAQ with proper formatting.

1.2-> Basic Netiquette
Here are some good guidelines to follow when reading not only this =
but any Usenet group.

Read the newsgroup for at least a month before posting.
Reading what other people post for a while gives you a basic idea of what
regular readers of the group are interested in discussing.  An example is=
recent Winona vs. Pam Anderson thread.  The general consensus has been to=
the thread die, but it hasn't because a newbie will come along, see the
thread, and innocently post his/her two cents.  Reading for a month =
posting can help avoid this.

Reading for a while before posting also can let you know which topics =
been discussed to death.  Posting a message asking for any and all nudes =
Winona, for example, is a great way to announce your newbie status.

The one month time frame is used because FAQs are often posted on a =
basis, so you should wait and see if the newsgroup has a FAQ before =
posting a
question that has most likely already been answered.  A list of Winona's =
credits is a popular request that has already been covered (in another =
of this FAQ).

Avoid excessive cross-posting.
Cross-posting is when an identical message is posted to two or more
newsgroups.  Sometimes a cross-post is appropriate and can create =
discussion between readers of several newsgroups.  An appropriate =
is the aforementioned Winona vs. Pam Anderson thread which was =
cross-posted to and  Excessive and irrelevant
cross-posts include the recent Nazi Alert! and Are you Christian? =

Also be aware of the message headings, which include information about =
groups the message is being posted to.  If you reply to a message that =
been cross-posted, your reply is automatically cross-posted to the same =
as the original post, unless you edit the message header.

Don't spam.
Spamming is different from cross-posting in that spamming involves =
posting the
same message to a zillion newsgroups for the purposes of advertising.  =
Ask a
'net-savvy friend to tell you the story of The Green Card Lawyers.  =
is kind of like junk mail.  It's intrusive and you generally don't want =
read it.  Anyone who's spamming is most likely not reading this anyway, =
hey, you can't say I didn't try.

Respect others as you'd like to be respected.
The Internet is the ultimate forum for free speech: you can say what you =
to a potential audience of millions all over the world.  Just be aware =
not everyone wants to hear what you have to say.  And for those of you =
want to tell everyone what's acceptable speech and what's not, don't.  =
all adults, and if we're not, we should be supervised.  If you feel the =
to insult someone for something they posted (I recommend you don't), =
always e-mail.

1.3-> About the FAQ and Its Sources of Info
A lot of the same questions get posted to this newsgroup from time to =
Thus, they are Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).  The aim of this FAQ =
list is
to answer some of those questions on a regular basis.

The information in this FAQ comes from various sources: my own knowledge,
magazine articles, sites such as the Internet Movie Database, and posts =
to  I don't really quote any specific sources, since I
cannot remember where I got all of the specific information.  I don't =
credit because I'd rather not credit anyone if I can't credit everyone.  =
you contributed something to this FAQ, you know who you are and I thank =

This FAQ is not meant to be the definitive Winona Ryder bible.  I've =
some cursory biographical info, some answers to Frequently Asked =
and a filmography.  This FAQ doesn't go into microscopic detail because =
also listed some Winona related Internet sites, and what's fun in =
them out if you don't discover some new information there?

1.4-> Where can I get a copy of the FAQ?
The various sections of the FAQ are posted to on the
first and third Friday of each month.  That averages out to about =
or fortnightly, or whatever you call two weeks in your corner of the =
The FAQ will be posted to news.answers and alt.answers on the first =
Friday of
the month.  The subject line will appear as follows:
