Respect for other posters and use of appropriate language on our community mailing lists

We should like to remind list users that irrespective of the basic
levels of experience or knowledge of some of the posters here, that they
are asking for community help and that advice should be given politely
and with respect shown both towards the original poster and other
contributors to a thread.

The same courtesy and respect is also expected of list members towards
others when discussing more advanced and complex topics.  Please
remember that:

- English is not the first language for all - this can lead to

- Beginners don't always 'get it' from the start (but with gentle
guidance may become the experts of the future and surprise us all)

If you disagree with another poster on a technical matter, please
explain your position clearly, thoughtfully, and with appropriate
support for your viewpoint.

If you believe that you are the target of an insulting or inappropriate
post, please alert the list administrators rather than retaliating on
the mailing list.

If you have any other concerns about a poster, please bring them to the
attention of the list administrators.

Insulting and derogatory posts will not be tolerated and will result in
future posts from those list members who are posting in this manner
being held for moderation or suspended indefinitely from this community.
