I certainly understand. But if I can weigh in with an opinion as someone with more than 20 years experience in communications... all things considered this list is well ordered and articulate. I think the "rules" per se, is a little much. People that have something to say or those that need genuine help will learn how to express themselves properly. Well... it worked for Helen Keller.

The rules for doing so, which are generally accepted etiquette for usenet and lists like this one, have been posted. It's not a question of having an open mind, it's a question of everyone else having enough time to sort through messy posts trying to figure out what is trying to be said. Please try to understand that people want to be helpful and contribute here, but they have other things to do as well.
