Subject STOP CROSSPOSTING to Private/PMC/members lists
Date Fri, 24 Jun 2005 21:58:43 GMT
Under no circumstances is it EVER appropriate to cc a private list
when talking in public, or cc a public list when talking in private.
I don't care why you think it is appropriate to hit two audiences
in a single mail, or why you think your time is more important than
everyone else's combined, this behavior must stop now.

Aside from being a terribly rude abuse of Internet etiquette and
a complete waste of time for those of us on both lists, it leads
to all sorts of antisocial behavior when people and machines do
a reply-all without noticing the scope of their reply.  Private
lists should never be used for public discussions, period.  If you
feel some desperate need to alert someone on a private list that
isn't watching on the public list, then send them a separate mail.
