Netiquette is general guidelines on good behavior while using the
Internet. Everybody on the Freaks list is kindly asked to keep this in
mind. A short summary:

Signatures:
  4 or 5 lines will suffice. Longer signatures usually bother people,
  especially those who read the digest format of Freaks.

Posting personal messages:
  Keep in mind that whatever message you post will bounce to everybody
  on the list. Posting personal messages is not appreciated and should
  be avoided whenever possible.

Posting test messages:
  Don't! Messages like "Is this list still running?" are very
  irritating to others. If the list is still running and you don't
  receive any mail, you're probably not subscribed (anymore). Try
  resubscribing or contacting the listowner. You can also request an
  overview of who is subscribed to the list by using the freaks-request
  auto reply feature.  See section 1.3 for more info.  Remember, there
  is always a chance the list may be temporarily down.

Quoting:
  When quoting someone else's message, quote only the part to which you
  are responding. Leave out the rest (like the signature of the other
  person), as it is a waste of bandwidth and annoys other people.

Flaming:
  Sending unfriendly messages to Freaks is called flaming. Flaming is never
  appreciated so don't. If you really must send a flame then do it using
  private e-mail. A number of flame wars terrorized Freaks in the past,
  help us to keep Freaks flame-free!

Please keep these basic guidelines in mind when posting to Freaks@ax.com
(and any other mailing list or UseNet as well).
