Dear WAI IG participants,

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. Be open to different perspectives.
* 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
