Monthly posting of the guidelines for participation in the Midrange
Systems Mailing List.

Keep to the subject.  The topic of the echo is Midrange Systems. I think
we can generally agree that the S/34, S/36, S/38, & AS/400 are IBM's
Midrange Computer Family.  Discussion of PC topics as they relate to
Midrange Systems (ie. Emulation, connectivity, PC Support, etc) is fine.
The same applies to Mainframe discussion.

When quoting messages, do not quote the entire message.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 the Midrange Systems Mailing List is English.

Do not post personal messages.  Please use direct E-Mail.  This echo is
international in scope and personal messages just end up costing money.
Job and/or employment messages are forbidden.  Please use the various
jobs oriented conferences.

Digest mode IS available... send email to DIGEST-INFO@midrange.com for
information on how to switch to digest mode.

Vendors: You are allowed to post messages announcing items of global
appeal (remember, this group is read world-wide).  Advertising products,
repeated postings, etc, are strictly prohibited.  Also, if you have a
solution that will specificly help another participant, feel free to
tell that person.  And finally, if you are a vendor, please identify
yourself as such... do not try to pass yourself off as a user of your
own products (even if you are).

Violation of the above guidelines will be determined by the moderator
and will result either a) The offending party will be forced to make
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).

If you have questions or comments about these guidelines, please feel
free to contact the moderator, David Gibbs via internet e-mail at
