Hey Steve and Clara,
The way the netiquette is intended to be set up does not interfere with
free speech in any way. Being born in Germany I understand the concerns
from people about over-regulation totally. This netiquette - if not
being bloated - will not be an example of such.
I myself would find it helpful to send a copy to every new subscriber.
Those "Test", "HTML" and "long quote" e-mails kindda annoy me.
Especially for newcomers a link to the databases would be great because
many sendmail, firewall and sound problems are VERY similar. IMO there
should not be a need to answer them on a weekly basis.
I am opposed to "RTFM's" as much as you are and I believe this list was
always a good example of how people can work together without editor,
desktop or distro-flaming. (Or @ least not with such a massive extent as
you find it in usenet). This will help to maintain the list as a forum
for both "newbies" and more experienced users. Nobody should become
annoyed by the same stuff every 2 days.

Just the 0.02 from a German Jamerican 8)
cheers - sasa
