RULES OF THE ROAD (May 10, 2007)
1. Unless it's absolutely required to make the message clear, do NOT
quote the original message in total, no one needs the extra bandwidth.
2. Do NOT attach files to you messages to the list. If what you have is
of interest to a large number of list members, send it to the list
owner for posting on the web site.
3. While notices of items for sale can be posted, this list is NOT to be
used to market auction items.
4. This list does not allow subscriptions from forwarded email addresses.
If you have subscribed from this type of address(arrl.net, qsl.net,
amsat.org, etc.), please unsubscribe and subscribe from an account
that is not forwarded.
Subcription requests should always be made at http://zerobeat.net/drakelist/listjoin.html
Unsubscrine requests should always be made at http://mailman.zerobeat.net/mailman/listinfo/drakelist
Our list is called "firstname.lastname@example.org" .
In the event of an address change, it would probably be the wisest to
first send an unsubscribe for the old address (this can be done from the
new address), and then a new subscribe for the new address
(THE ORDER IS IMPORTANT).
Most (un)subscription requests are processed automatically without human
If you no longer have access to the original address you used to
subscribe to the list, please send email to:
email@example.com requesting that your old address be
5. MIME Encloded Messages:
Our list doesn't appreciate MIME encoded messages. The biggest problem is
how do we set up our mail clients to NOT send messages in that fashion.
http://www.expita.com/nomime.html has a lot of current information on the
subject. If you've ever been asked to turn off the mime, and not sure
how to...this is the link.
6. POSTING FOR SALE AND WANT TO BUY MESSAGES
Please feel free to post your For Sale and Want to buy messages to the
list, as long as:
They are not directing us to participate in an Ebay or other Auction
They are not written in such a way to create a bidding situation in this
It should go without saying or regulating the For Sale and Want To Buy
messages on this list are based on the premise that the list members have
an interest in Drake Equipment, and the posting of the messages offer a
service to other members of the list.
Those that cross a T and dot an i will ponder whether or not a post about
the value of a piece of drake gear is acceptable. In most instances it is
- unless of course the poster is being real slick, asking a question about
the value of something that he/she has listed on E-Bay.
For those that want a more widely viewed forum, please feel free to use
the classified ad system on the Drake Website.
