1. Guidelines for MIDRANGE-JOBS mailing list (mailman@xxxxxxxxxxxx)
date: Sat, 1 Jan 2011 06:32:25 -0600
subject: [MIDRANGE-JOBS] Guidelines for MIDRANGE-JOBS mailing list
Monthly posting of the guidelines for participation in the Midrange
Jobs Mailing List.
Keep to the subject. The topic of the list is Midrange Jobs. Midrange
systems include the AS/400, iSeries, and System i5. Posting Job openings,
resumes, etc, are all fine. Technical discussions should be taken to
MIDRANGE-L, RPG400-L, JAVA400-L, or the appropriate discussion forum.
Application discussion should be taken to the appropriate list (if
hosted by MIDRANGE dot COM) or some other appropriate area.
This is NOT a forum for consultants to find clients (or clients to
find contractors). If someone is caught soliciting such contracts,
they will be banned from all lists hosted by MIDRANGE dot COM without
possibility for parole. We define employment as having a W2 (or whatever
the local equivalent tax form is), benefits, and is intended to be
relatively permament. In addition, the forum is not for computer
users to find contractors or consultants. Requests For Quotation
or Proposals (RFQ or RQP) are *NOT* appropriate.
When posting resumes and job openings, do not send them as word processor
files... not everyone will be able to process such files. Use plain
MIDRANGE dot COM is *NOT* a recruiting firm ... this mailing list is
being offered as a public service only. We do not require or expect
any compensation for positions filled through this list (well, if you
do get a job through this list... you an buy me lunch next time we're
both at COMMON :).
When starting a new discussion thread, *PLEASE* try to avoid replying to
an existing message to get the correct email address. When you reply to
an existing message, most email clients and the list archiving software
think that the new thread is part of the old thread, and will display it
When quoting messages, do not quote the entire message. Just quote the
parts that are needed to make the appropriate references.
Flames are absolutely prohibited. If you disagree with someone, feel
free to argue the facts, but no personal attacks will be tolerated.
The official language of this list is English.
Do not post personal messages. Please use direct E-Mail. This list is
international in scope and personal messages just end up costing money.
Collecting or "Mining" of email address from this forum, or any related
web archive, is strictly and explicitly prohibited (not to mention that
it is extraordinarily unprofessional).
PLEASE NOTE: When posting to the list, any personally identifying
information in your message will be included in the list. Email
addresses, however, are masked when being formatted for the list
archives. If you include a standard signature in all messages, consider
using the internet standard for signature separator (as defined in RFC
3676, http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3676) of '-- ' (that's dash dash
space). The list archiving software will automatically stop including
the message when it encounters the marker.
PLEASE do not report list messages to your mail providers abuse / spam
department. This results in a black mark against midrange.com and,
depending on the mail provider's policies, can cause mail delivery
delays for everyone who uses both midrange.com with that mail provider.
midrange.com does treat abuse reports very seriously and acts upon them
immediately. When abuse reports are received, and the reporting person
can be identified, they will be removed from all lists immediately ...
and then a follow-up email will be sent.
If you wish to be unsubscribed from a list and cannot do so through the
normal mechanisms (identified at the bottom of every list message),
please contact the list owner or support@xxxxxxxxxxxx for assistance.

major modifications to a 10 year old, matching records, RPG II program
that uses every available indicator or b) permanent disconnection from
the conference (you decide which is worse).
