Biomch-L subscribers,

1. I would like to remind you that Biomch-L should not be used
for commercial advertising. Of course, individuals with
commercial affiliation are still encouraged to participate
in the forum. But absolutely no unsolicited advertising.
Advertising is easily recognized by its style, we recently saw
some postings with many *'s and !'s. To make yourself known
to the world, use the Biomechanics Yellow Pages:

2. Do not attach binary files to postings. First, this an
inefficient use of disk space on LISTSERV and subscribers'
mail servers. Second, Microsoft Word is *not* a standard
for exchange of information on the Internet. Many of us
use other software for document preparation and viewing.
All attachments to Biomch-L postings should be 'text-only'.
If you wish to distribute large files, I can provide space
on the ISB/Biomch-L web server.

3. Do not use Biomch-L as a substitute for literature
research. It is not a good use of our subscribers' time
and results are usually disappointing. Respondents will
be *much* more motivated if you do some homework first.

These guidelines have been added to the Biomch-L mini-faq.
