WELCOME TO BIBLIO!


Please read the following guidelines and disclaimer statements. All participants on the Bibliophile Mailing List agree to abide by the guidelines set forth in this statement. If after reading you do not agree to abide by these guidelines you may unsubscribe from the list simply by sending email to biblio-request@ListService.net and put the word UNSUBSCRIBE in the body of your email.

The Bibliophile Mailing List exists for the purpose of buying and selling rare, scarce, out-of-print, and collectible books and related material; and for discussions pertaining to these activities. Members are expected to observe the amenities of good manners and professional behavior. We welcome articles and discussions about books, including collecting, preserving, selling, etc.

Administrivia: To leave the list, send email to biblio-request@ListService.net and put the word UNSUBSCRIBE in the body of your letter. Biblio is a very busy list. You may find it easier to handle the volume of mail in the digest version. To subscribe to the digest version send the command SUBSCRIBE in the form of email to biblio-digest-request@ListService.net.

In general you may subscribe and unsubscribe at will from biblio. To subscribe send the command SUBSCRIBE to biblio-request@ListService.net [or biblio-digest-request@ListService.net]. To unsubscribe send the command UNSUBSCRIBE to the same address.

It is not necessary that you unsubscribe if you are going to be away, but you should shut off your bibliophile mail. If you do not your mailbox will rapidly fill up and messages will begin to bounce. At that point you will be shut off by me. When you return simply start the mail again.

To shut off the list send a message to biblio-request(or biblio-digest-request)@ListService.net and in the body say only:
set biblio (or biblio-digest) nomail

To turn it back on again upon your return sned a message to the same address and in the body say only:
set biblio (or biblio-digest) mail

Bibliophile is a closed list, meaning only subscribers are allowed to post. This is to protect the subscribers from spamming fastbuck operators. It does mean however that unless you are subscribed with exactly the same address as in your "from" return address majordomo will reject your postings. If you change email addresses, it is important that you unsubscribe your old address and subscribe your new one or your postings will be rejected. In this or anything else, if you have a problem with biblio please write the list owner, Lynn DeWeese-Parkinson at cldp@teleport.com. Lynn, of course, prefers his full title of Grand Poohbah of Bibliotenango.

4. Subscribers are asked to limit themselves to two posts per day in the WTB and FS categories. Posts in discussion categories are not restricted, but you are asked to limit these postings to topics and responses of general interest. Please do not copy the entirety of the original message when responding to the list. Simply delete all but the relevant portions of the original message. Subscribers are asked not to post other subscribers' email elsewhere without the original writer's permission. All articles posted for the Biblio Book School are the property of the Bibliophile Mailing List, copyright 1997, and may not be copied for use other than on Biblio without the express written permission of the Bibliophile Mailing List owner.

6. Personal attacks of any kind are not tolerated on Biblio and will result in probation for a first violation and termination of the subscription of any individual posting such an attack if it occurs a second time. In addition, intentionally posting personal email to the public list is a violation of Netiquette and is also forbidden on Biblio. This too will result in probation and subsequent termination of your Biblio subscription if repeated.

7. Attachments to email are not allowed on Biblio. All messages, lists, summaries, etc. should be sent as part of the body of the post; never as attachments.

8. Complaints regarding other subscribers relating to transactions resulting from postings on Biblio should be directed to the listowner, owner-biblio@ListService.net.
