[IP] "Beeswas" thread

Dear Listmates

The "beeswas" thread will immediately cease! 

First of all, I would like to call your attention to the following, 
particularly numbers 1 and 5.

       1. Please restrict your posts to the discussion of insulin
          pumps in the treatment of diabetes. This may also
          include general discussion of diabetes and related
       2. Please remember that it is in the nature of diabetes
          that what works for one person may not work for another.
          In Internet parlance, "your mileage may vary," or YMMV.
       3. Be accurate with the information you provide. Cite your
          sources when you quote them. Make it clear when you
          offer a personal opinion.
       4. Give blood glucose levels (bg's) in mg/dL.
       5. Be polite and respectful.
       6. Religion and politics are not suitable topics for
          discussion EXCEPT for the "Spirit" mail list where
      they may be discussed.
       7. Advertisements are not allowed.

Next, I would like to call your attention to our "Netiquette" guide, 
<A HREF="http://www.insulin-pumpers.org/netiquette.shtml">
http://www.insulin-pumpers.org/netiquette.shtml</A>, part of which is posted 

"Flaming will not be tolerated. "Flaming" is what people do when they make an 
emotionally opinionated comment using language intended to be 
confrontational. For this list, flaming is defined as personal attacks and/or 
criticism of another list member that have the effect of holding another 
person up to harsh ridicule, demeaning them as a person, or otherwise 
inflicting hostility or anger on them. What one person may understand to be 
friendly kidding, another may perceive as hostile flaming. To help control 
the flaming impulse, remember: 
everyone has an opinion, a life, and a value; don't try to demean that 
be kind and think twice before responding; sometimes the most appropriate 
response is a nicely worded private e-mail instead of posting to the list 
flaming helps no one, not even yourself; remember you may be losing the 
respect of hundreds of people you have never even seen before 
repeated flaming offenses will result in your list membership being revoked." 

Please think before you hit the "send" button.
