This group is for periodic postings that should be read by all new Usenet
members, to educate themselves about the Usenet community, its norms,
guidelines and mechanisms.

Introductory messages like this one will be repeated every month, in
order to reach all newcomers.  These messages will be placed in
news.announce.newusers, which is a moderated newsgroup.  This makes it
safe for experienced users who have already read these messages to
unsubscribe to news.announce.newusers without missing anything new in
news.announce.important.

If you aren't familiar with the netnews guidelines in
news.announce.newusers, please read them carefully.  Your understanding
of these rules will assure that you don't annoy the more than 3 million
members of the net community (estimated) by unintentionally abusing the
net, and will help you get more value from the net.

This group does not accept postings from users (although the moderator is
usually willing to entertain suggestions for edits and additions to
existing postings).  In addition to the periodic re-posting of these
messages in news.announce.newusers, changes to the news.announce.newusers
postings will be posted to news.misc; this allows experienced users to
just follow the differences.  After reading the postings in
news.announce.newusers, newcomers can refer to the lists of newsgroups,
mailing lists and periodic informational postings in news.lists.misc.
