  Hi all,

Before sending messages to the WAI Interest Group list, please think about how the message will come across to the hundreds of people on the list. For example,
* Treat people with respect.
* Make sure the message is appropriate for the list and addresses issues of web accessibility.
* Use a Subject line that describes the topic well. If you change topics, change the Subject. This is usually handled as follows:
         New Topic XYZ [was: Old Topic]
* Explain the issue clearly. Provide sufficient background information.
* When your comments are not useful for the entire list, reply off-list -- that is, reply directly to the sender and do not send the message to the list.

If you have questions about whether or not a message is appropriate for the WAI IG list, feel free to contact me *before* you send it.

Thank you,
~Shawn
