  1. Please sign your posts, including location and climate information, to help the rest of the group understand the geographic and climatic context for your comments.
  2. Please use a subject heading that clearly describes your post. When responding to that post, use the same subject heading so those who search the archives can easily find all the posts on that subject.
  3. If you change the subject content in subsequent emails, change the subject heading. You may add “Was [previous subject heading]” in parentheses after your new heading.
  4. Include only enough information from the prior post to identify it. DO NOT INCLUDE THE ENTIRE MESSAGE. This reduces archive clutter, and is a courtesy to all members of the PBS list, especially digest subscribers.
