	iris-talk@onelist.com was created on June 25th, 1998 by
	John Jones(nospam@mallorn.com) as a temporary adjunct to 
	the IRIS_L@RT66.com owned by Tom Tadfor Little(telp@rt66.com).

	New subscribers are encouraged to post a message introducing
	themselves.  If you do so, please begin the subject line of your
	message with "OT-BIO: ", followed by your name, so that other
	list members will know it is your introductory message.


	iris-talk@onelist.com is an unmoderated list. This means the
	list owner does not personally review each message to decide 
	if it's appropriate. This responsibility rests with the subscribers.

	Please note the following policies.

	These are not laws or restrictions, just suggested practices that
	(if most of us follow them) will make the list more useful,
	manageable, and pleasant for all. Please show your "good
	citizenship" by reading these guidelines, keeping them for
	reference, and using them when you post to the list.

	a. General Posting Guidelines (aka The Ten Commandments)

	1) Junk Mail. Do not post messages that are circulating through
	the internet at large. This includes virus warnings, humor, chain
	letters, charity appeals, etc. This is not the place for them.

	2) Matters for the List Owner. If someone posts something you
	think is inappropriate, or if you want to make a comment
	regarding problems with the list culture or the list policies,
	you are encouraged to refer the matter to the list moderator, off-
	list (at telp@rt66.com), rather than posting to the list about
	it. This will keep our discussions more polite and also more
	iris-oriented. Be tolerant...even of those who do not follow
	these guidelines. Often it's best to just let it be.

	3) Potentially Offensive Subjects. Do not post anything with
	political or religious content, even if there is some tenuous
	connection with irises. Some people have very strong feelings on
	these topics, and there is no reason to risk starting a heated
	debate over something that is rather clearly off-topic to begin
	with. By the same rationale, avoid using profanity, even in jest.

	4) Flames. Do not flame! When does a discussion become a flame?
	That's a judgment call, of course. Examine your emotions as you
	type. If you're "worked up" over the message you're replying to,
	don't send. Wait a day and think it over.

	5) Subject Lines. CHECK the subject line before you send, even if
	you are replying to a previously posted message. If the subject
	line accurately reflects the content of your message, leave it
	alone! If it doesn't, change it!

	6) On-List/Off-List. CHECK the recipient line before you send. If
	it says "iris-l@rt66.com" the posting will go to each and every
	subscriber on the list. Often, this is what you want. But if the
	message is personal, off-topic, or of very limited interest, it
	should probably be sent to one (or a few) particular recipients,

	7) Attachments. Do not send binary attachments, such as digitized
	images, to the list. 

	8) Message Length. Watch the size of your message. When replying
	to a previously posted message, trim the quotation down to the
	minimum needed to establish context.

	9) Subject Tags. Use the official subject tags (see below)
	whenever possible.

	10) Try not to bother the list with something you can easily 
	find on your own, without involving 300 other people.

	b. Subject Tags

	Here is the list of subject tags, which I encourage everyone to
	use to preface the subject lines of their messages to Iris-L.
	Please use the tags as they are given; do not invent variations.
	If the practice loses its consistency, it will also lose much of
	its usefulness. I know this is a long listing, but that is a
	reflection of the breadth and variety of our discussions. Don't
	be intimidated; they will become quickly familiar after a short
	time. Try to use the tag that fits your message best. It is often
	appropriate to combine a tag from the first set (types of irises)
	with one from another set. If nothing fits, don't worry. The tags
	are not mandatory.

	TB:    tall bearded irises
	MED:   median and dwarf bearded irises
	AR:    arilbred and aril irises
	SIB:   Siberian irises
	LA:    Louisiana irises
	JI:    Japanese irises
	SPU:   spuria irises
	PCN:   Pacific coast native irises
	BULB:  bulb irises (Dutch, reticulatas, Junos)
	SPEC:  iris species (particularly those not covered in another

	REB:   reblooming irises
	SA:    space-age irises
	HIST:  historic irises and history of iris development

	SHOW:  iris shows and related topics
	IRC:   IRC chat sessions (currently Friday nights)
	AIS:   American Iris Society business and issues
	PHOTO: iris photography
	COMP:  iris-related computer topics (record keeping, photo
digitizing, etc.)
	CAT:   iris catalogs and discussion of commercial nurseries
	AD:    iris-related advertisement (ads not related to irises are

	OT-PLANTS: other garden plants (not irises)
	OT-ART:    iris-motif art and craftwork
	OT-HUMOR:  iris-related humor
	OT-CHAT:   personal messages and conversation (consider taking it
	OT-BIO:    introduction from a new subscriber (please follow with
your name)

	ADMIN: list administration issues (reserved for the list owner)

	c. Undeliverable Mail

	If the listserver is repeatedly unable to deliver mail to your 
	address, you may be put on digest mode to reduce the number of 
	error messages produced. When the problem has passed and you 
	begin to receive mail again, you may leave digest mode by 
	following the instructions at the Onelist.com user center at:

	If the problem persists for a week or more, you may be removed from
	the list.

	Summary (IMPORTANT):

	iris-talk@onelist.com is the LIST ADDRESS, used when you want
	to post a message for everyone to read.

	John Jones (nospam@mallorn.com) is the LIST OWNER, a human 
	being who is your point of contact for questions or problems.

	Enjoy the list!
