Mailing Lists
We don't moderate the lists prescriptively but we do operate on a rule of "three strikes and you're out". No whining, no flaming, monopolisation or excessive requoting. It is considered polite to sign your messages and to use your own first name, not a nickname. Users posting with offensive nicknames or email addresses are likely to be bumped off and banned.

Please move specialised or off-topic threads into suggested other lists when requested by a moderator.

Advertisements of any kind will result in immediate banning.

ASK SMART QUESTIONS! Please read this article before subscribing to any list!

The people who help you in the lists are volunteers. Please don't waste their time by not providing enough information. As a minimum, provide:
  • a smart Subject for your message. "Problem" or "Bug" are not smart.
  • the version and model (Classic/Superserver/embedded) of the server you are using
  • the operating system the server is running on, including version
  • what language and data access interface you are using for your client application
