Groups forgetting basic rules

Somehow big groups tend to forget basic rules, (i.e. someone from the group breaks the rule), even if the rule is one of the Top5 rules they have to follow. One common example of this is the (BTW, really easy) Keywording Policy in Gentoo. Luckily our Sparc team is very good at fighting people forgetting it 🙂

But today I’m not going to remind the Keywording Policy since surprisingly enough nobody broke it recently. I want to remind every person participating in mailing lists, usenet groups, … to read again the Netiquette. This specially applies to my LUG fellows, it’s mailling-list moderator/administrator and of course myself.

As somebody said the quality of our LUG and therefore its mailling-list only depends on our behavior. Also please consider reading Email Etiquette and the comments on top-posting. The constant breaking of this basic rules will keep valuable people out of the list and you will even force some of them to leave the LUG and cease their activity.
