For several years all subscribers have received the following in the
welcoming message. Time to remind. And I will add to this not to post in
anything other than PLAIN TEXT.
For quality reasons, please observe the following rules when sending
messages to the list. If you have any questions about whether or not
something is appropriate, feel free to contact the list moderators prior to
1.Avoid negative comments about any individual. If there is a problem
with someone on the list, then e-mail that person directly. Also, avoid
mention of any names if the associated comment is not positive.
2.Do not include any foul or obscene language on any message sent to the
3.Excessive negative generalizations will not be tolerated.
4.Do not send any chain letters, virus warning letters, or any other type
of "pass it on" e-mail under any circumstances to
5.Do not forward private e-mails to the list. It is OK to copy part of a
message that has appeared on the list, but it is not
permitted to copy or forward part or all of a message that someone sent
to you off-list.
6.Stick to the topic of Information Architecture.
7.Every e-mail should have added value/substance. "Me too" mail without
added value is not acceptable.

copies of the digest to appear in any of your posts.
You may selectively cut and paste relevant portions of a given post to
include in your post, but including the entire
digest is not allowed.

taking an existing discussion off on a specific
tangent, make sure the subject line reflects the change in conversation
