In fact, it does send the link to the guidelines in the welcome
message:

    Welcome to the [email protected] mailing list! To help
    keep the list running smoothly, please take a moment to familiarize
    yourself with the list guidelines at:

      http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mailing_list_guidelines

    ...

Not that it always helps.  Some people insist on conflating poor
behavior with individual liberty or just plain ignorance.  Honestly,
the best policy IMO is to gently remind folks not to top post (nor to
neglect to trim what they quote once or trice.  After that, not
responding is what I try to do.
