Fellow Sun Managers:
Can we all agree that the summary below is not very helpful? I'm sorry
to pick on the author, but I've noticed a LOT of similar "pseudo-summaries"
lately, and I think people are missing the point of this list.
I've even seen more than a few "thank-yous" sent to the list, with no
summary information, so it is clear that many people posting questions are
not aware that EVERYONE on the list is supposed to benefit from the answers
When you post a question, you are responsible for posting a followup
1. ...includes [SUMMARY] in the "Subject" line!
1. ...includes your original question (don't assume anyone will
remember anything...we're all pretty busy).
2. ...actually summarizes your findings. You're not supposed to just
include the answers you received, although this is helpful; it is
your responsibility to filter through it and summarize the
important points. If different methods are suggested, then try
them out and report on the results.
A small price to pay for such an incredible source of information.
Can someone please refresh my memory as to why it is a bad idea to
require that those posting to the list are actually subscribed to it?
It's quite clear that many people posting questions have never read
the list charter, and have no clue how the list operates.
There, I'm done.
