The moderator reserves the right to ban subscribers who incite ad
hominem attacks. We want to keep the discussion of the list
useful and enjoyable.

Please do not post attached files of any kind to the list. If you
have something like a picture or an executable that you wish to
share, store it on an FTP server or a web page and post a URL to
the list. PAW is configured to automatically reject posts
with attached files.

Once subscribed to PAW, to post a message send an email to:

Please configure your mailer properly:

The list server software is designed to handle the sending of only
simple TEXT messages best.

- Do NOT use "QP: or "Quoted Printable" options. This is a sneaky
and usually-ineffective way some mailers use to slip in PC text
characters. It just makes regular mail look ugly when read with a
mailer (like elm) which doesn't understand QP.

- Similarly, if your mailer includes the ability to generate HTML
output, TURN IT OFF. HTML output is usually sent as an attachment
along with a simple TEXT version and adds unnecessary (ugly) junk
to the digest form of the list. Nearly all HTML files are
automatically rejected by the list server.

- Avoid using colors, fonts and other fancy features supported by
your mailer. If you want to make an elegant presentation, do it
in a document that you post to a website.

Jeffery L. Smith is the PAW
list owner/administrator. That's the first person you should
contact if you're having a problem with the list or the list
server. Godfrey DiGiorgi is also
available to assist with problems.

Carl Paukstis does the list
server administration behind the scenes. Both pay to keep the
list running with blood, sweat and tears, not to mention a
considerable amount of time and effort.
