Dear Josh, Every one who subscribes to this list gets a welcome message than includes the guidelines for our list. It doesn't have anything in it about grammar or spelling as we do have a number of members whose native language is not English and we appreciate their attempts to communicate with us as best they can. The purpose of this list is to communicate with each other. Not including the entire message isn't a problem when you are searching for a pbs message through Google as the messages come in a format that includes a link for the previous message, a link for the next message and a way to sort the archives by date, thread, subject, author. So you can easily find out more information if you need it. To remind those of you who are long time subscribers here are the guidelines that come with the welcome message: Pacific Bulb Society Mailing List Welcome to an Internet discussion forum on bulbs, sponsored by the Pacific Bulb Society, for people around the world. Although bulbs (defined more broadly to include all geophytes) are the focus, we recognize that people who grow them probably grow other things too and will be talking about them from time to time. Guidelines for posting: 1. Please sign your posts and include your location and climate information to help the rest of the group understand your information. 2. Attachments are not allowed and including them will cause messages to be held for approval. Images can be shared by using the PBS wiki. 3. Please use a subject heading that describes your post and when responding to that post please use the same subject heading so people who search the archives can find all the information on one subject easily. 4. If you change the subject, please change the subject heading as well. 5. Include only enough information from the post you are replying to identify it. DO NOT INCLUDE THE ENTIRE MESSAGE. This is to keep our archives uncluttered and is also a courtesy to the members of the list, especially the digest subscribers. 6. Post answers to questions raised to our list members to everyone as there will be many interested in your reply. 7. Post messages that are of a private nature (such as thanks or information about swapping seed or bulbs) privately. 8. Please refrain from posting your commercial offerings on our list. 9. Remember whatever you post will be archived and available for others to read.
