I recently subscribed and must say it's a hell of a list you folks have. My first exposure was some elitist "pro" slamming a newbie for asking a basic question about preparing scans for an ad. Obviously your Rule 8 (No questions are too basic...) is meaningless. Furthermore, Rule 5 (Be patient and polite...) is also just so much rubbish, right? Now, for a wearisome period, posting members have become obsessed with VAT, socialized medicine and global warming, all seasoned with large portions of anti-Bush and anti-American sentiment. While Rule 1 says, "The subject of all posts should be related to scanning," it too must be an impotent dictum. At first I thought that because I was new I must be confused about the list's purpose, so I reviewed the "general information" mailing that I received. Astonishingly it says that appropriate topics include: hardware, software, color, storage, images and printing. Since I've only been in the profession since 1970, and have obviously missed something, I have a question for the list's "experienced pros." What the hell does global warming, socialized medicine, et al, have to do with anything on the "appropriate topics" list? - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
