[REBOL] Contribution `rules'

From: dness:home at: 22-Jun-2001 12:08

I am a newcomer to the Rebol List. Is there a brief description anywhere of what is regarded as `good taste' in communication on the list? Perhaps it is best if I just make my questions specific: (1) What about Jeopardy quoting? (i.e. answers `above' questions) On comp.lang.perl.misc they are an anathema, but here they seem to be common. (2) What suggestions are there about trimming prior posts. On most of the lists I participate in, previous responses are supposed to be trimmed to the minimum necessary to understand the current communication. Here it seems to be quite common to quote previous responses in total. I'm happy to try to make my posts conform to any suggested `standard', and am equally happy if there are no such standards. I just don't want my habits from other newsgroups to cause offense here.
