[IP] "Beeswas" thread
The "beeswas" thread will immediately cease!
First of all, I would like to call your attention to the following,
particularly numbers 1 and 5.
GUIDELINES FOR CONTENT
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,
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.
