Top-posting is probably best and snip any extraneous text - try to avoid
scrolling and redundancies. For serious discussion members, the best way to
participate in an online discussion is to use a dedicated news reader that
displays sorted plain text files.
Try to avoid using formatted text in large red or blue colors - usually that's
considered a form of flaming and blue should always be reserved for hyper-text
In internet lingo, calling someone a "troll" indicated disagreement or someone
you don't agree with. The use of the term "tex" often indicates prejudice.

I’m still waiting for the English translation, take this for example:
The trolling of mundane subject threads here posted and scrolling ticker-tape
style down the subject line with first lines of posts like one can read on news
feeds most anywhere, but on FFL, a spiritual Yahoo-group, they often do seem to
abuse the freedom of what Yahoo provides us as a group. .
Does “scrolling ticker-tape style” refer to the fact that comments and
responses are put up at the top? And if so, isn’t that where they’re supposed
to be? I always thought that was internet etiquette, so to speak.
I usually need some kind of translation program for Doug-speak but there are
those times, like this, when the program crashes.
