Dear Antony & List:
I have noticed that almost every list I have ever subscribed to has almost the exact rules as every other list I belong to. It is almost like they were from a large rubber stamp or cookie cutter.
The rules are usually:
Keep the language civil, like grandma was reading your posts
Please spell check before sending
Your subject line should be highly descriptive of your message body
Ask the author of a message from another source if you may post it here
In addition, Often, the rules are listed in exactly the same order on many different lists.
I expect the rules for this list are similar to other lists, even ones on different platforms, such as Mailman, Freelists.org, Yahoo groups, etc.
