Good Posting Practices
Strive to add value and be interesting.
Write in the first person, be authentic and truthful. Use your real name not an alias.
Since discussion groups have wide distribution and can live on indefinitely, be careful in what you write, and think about how it will be perceived by others.
Be aware of what’s happening and know what others are saying about the topics, and reference and link to them as appropriate.
When updating existing content, indicate clearly when and how you have changed the content.
If you make an error while posting, acknowledge and promptly correct it. If you modify an earlier post, make it clear that you have done so
