In view of recent comments on the list, I am forwarding a posting
from the late Bill Fisher, W4AN. While the list is not returning
to full moderation mode, please note Bill's comments on what is
not acceptable on this list.
In particular, the list will not tolerate personal insults - even
if 'intended' as a joke. Over the last few years, this list has
lost too many good amp builders and representatives of several
manufacturers/suppliers due to the bad manners, insults and snake
oil that often dominate the content here.
Further, the meta discussions about the operation of the list are
off-limits. Anyone who does not like the way the list operates
and is not willing to behave in a gentlemanly manner is welcome
to unsubscribe and go elsewhere.
If anyone has comments, feel free to respond directly to me.
Do not post your comments to the list.

Subject: [Amps] Changes to this Reflector
I've decided to make some changes to this reflector based on feedback
I've received from some of the membership as well as the list admin.
So here is the deal...
This list is now in 100% moderation mode.
What does 100% moderation mean?
Well, it means that any message you send to this reflector will be
reviewed by someone before it is approved and shows up for the list
at large to read.
Who does the moderation?
Several people have signed up to help do the moderating. Who that
will be, will depend on a lot of different things.
What doesn't make it through to the list?
a.. Personal attacks. If you disagree with someone's opinion on
this list, you should be able to do so without insults.
b.. Off subject posts.
c.. Personal mail - Thanking someone or the group for help should
be done in personal mail and not sent to the entire list.
When responding to a question posted to the list, your reply
should be of benefit to the list as a whole. If the response
is of benefit to only the person asking the question, then
respond to only that person.
d.. Meta-discussion about the Amps mailing list. These should be
conducted in private with the list owner.
