PLEASE FOLLOW THESE SUGGESTIONS WHEN USING THE LIST:

1. HOW TO ADDRESS YOUR MESSAGES

Always check the "to" field of your message BEFORE you send it. If you are writing to the whole group, the "to" field should say:
aquanet@cleverwhiz.com

If you are sending a private message to someone, or it is for just one or two list members, e.g. to say 'Thank you', please send it to their personal addresses. Once again, check the "To:" field in your email program before choosing the "send" command. This will keep the amount of mail the list receives to a manageable level.

2. REPLYING TO A MESSAGE

If you wish to respond to a message from the list, and you want your response to be seen by every member of the list, use the "reply to all" command of your email program to do this. If you want your response to go only to the one person who wrote the message that you are replying to, use the "reply" command without any "all recipients" option to do so.

If in doubt, check the "To:" and "CC:" fields of your message before sending. For the entire list "aquanet@cleverwhiz.com" will be included in either to "to" or "CC" field.

3. CHECK THE SUBJECT FIELD OF YOUR MESSAGE

Before sending your message make sure that you type in a suitable subject that will give other members a clear idea of what your message is about. This is especially important when you use the 'Reply' button and want to move the discussion on to a different topic.

4. CHECK THE CONTENT OF YOUR MESSAGE

Keep in mind that this list is about watercolor painting, so messages about guitars, world travel, lemurs (yes, those cute big-eyed non simian primates) and other fascinating topics should not be sent to us. They all have been in the past!

5. THE 'INFO' COMMAND

You will find instructions on using the 'info' command at the bottom of each message you receive from the list. Use it to get help about which commands to use for other list information.

6. JUNK-MAIL

On occasions you will find that junk-mail (spam) has been sent to the list. Please DO NOT try to remove it yourself. 'Remove' requests are seldom honored by spammers.If you try to remove it yourself you will be simply telling the spammer that your email address is alive and active. Before long you could be deluged with junk-mail, as your address will most likely be given to other junk-mail lists.

The best thing you can do is immediately delete it off your screen. Always leave it to the list-owner to handle spammers.

7. SENDING FILES TO THE LIST

Do not send files as attachments to the list. If you need to send a file to someone, send it in an email directly to them. If you want other group members to see your file, then put it on an ftp site or a link from a web page.

8. CONTACTING THE LIST OWNER, RAYMOND BLUM

When writing to the owner keep in mind that the position is voluntary and unpaid (and is filled by someone who is VERY sensitive and easily "put off"). The owner maintains the list as a service to fellow-artists.

If you are ever frustrated about something that has happened on the list, calm down then write the owner a rational account of the problem.
The owner can be contacted at
mailto:mailman@raymondblum.net

9. MANNERS

Courtesy, respect and tolerance are highly valued by list members. Opposing viewpoints are fine as long as they are expressed courteously.

If you are profane or abuse another member, you will be removed from the list, without warning. Period. End of discussion.
