ADMIN: long postings


Let me call your attention to the list policy regarding long postings.
The policy is not meant to cut off those who really have a lot to say--
rather it is meant to warn against the needless inclusion of unneeded
text in messages.

A good example is quoting the message you reply to. Accepted internet 
etiquette is to quote only the minimum needed to establish the context
of your reply. This is usually much less than the entire original message.

We could use a little work on this. Please, when you quote a message
give a little thought to how much is really needed. Quoting the whole
thing is the lazy way and the easy way, but it can make the list less
enjoyable (and in some cases more expensive!) for your fellow subscribers.

Regards, Tom.
