Some NITSlist tips from Bert
- If you send OFF TOPIC messages, please put the words OFF TOPIC in
capitals in the subject header. That's a very simple addition, but it will
help a lot of people to select the messages to read or to trash.
- You can FILTER your messages if you have a good email program (like
Eudora, Pegasus, Netscape mail, etc...) . So, if you don't want to read the
OFF TOPIC messages, filter them directly to your TRASH folder. This will be
very easy since the words OFF TOPIC can be filtered from the subject
header. (That's the way filters work : they try to recognize words in the
[NB.If you have a mailer like Eudora you can even prevent the program from
retrieving OFF TOPIC messages from your local server. No more wasted
bandwith... Tip : You can also filter all nitslist messages to a separate
folder. I do and it's very comfortable].
- If you have problems with the amount of email, please subscribe to the
DIGEST-version of this list. This allows you to read all messages in one
email a day and allows you to participate actively to the discussion. The
digest is sent daily. (NB The digest contains all posts off topic or not).
- On the NITSLIST information page, you can change your subscription from
"bounce" (receive every message immediately) to "digest" (receive one daily
email, containing all the messages of that day, if any).
- If you really think someone is going over the top, across the line, or
over whatever, please make a kind reply to that person and try not to
bother the entire list with your complaints... I believe in the power of a
kind and respectful human conversation. No flames on this list please.
- Replies to messages automatically go to the original sender of the list,
not to the list address. But this is only a formal change, you can easily
edit your reply message and put the list address in the TO-field.
