Now that our list appears to be back up and running properly, I think it's time to send out a gentle reminder about netiquette and what this list's mission is. First, remember that this list is for discussions of feline leukemia, related treatments and support for those who are dealing with this dreaded disease. We do, however, allow a bit of off-topic discussion because of the close-knit nature of this group of wonderful people. If you do plan to post something that is off-topic (but, hopefully, somehow related to FeLV and/or list members), remember to put 'OT' (without the quotes) at the beginning of the subject line. Next, remember to properly edit your emails to this list. Lately, folks have been posting messages that contain the complete text of the entire thread to which they are responding. This is causing problems with both the digest mode and email size limits for this list. So, please edit your messages to contain only the relevant text of previous emails. If you need assistance with this, please contact me privately, and I'll try to explain it further. Also, attachments are NOT allowed. That means, do not attach pictures, pdf files, Word document files, Excel files, etc. I will not forward such messages to the list. Lastly, due to the nature of this disease and its effects on our furry friends, there is a potential for passionate debates every now and then. While this may be healthy in a general sense, please try to observe the following rules: No flaming- ie; no personal attacks, hostile language, personal threats, etc., No posting messages that proclaim a, "my way or the highway" type of rhetoric. We are a diverse group of people with varying opinions on which treatment options work best for our loved ones. Some here believe that certain treatment options are not viable (or are simply hokum) while others swear by a particular treatment. Some here believe in mixing positives and negatives while others say that it shouldn't happen at all. Even if you adamantly disagree with another list member's point of view, please be respectful and sensitive to their right to their opinions. Members are free to share their opinions, but they are not permitted to badger others into submission. It is my hope that this message will serve as a general guideline to posting to FeLVTalk. If I've forgotten something, or if you disagree with the content of this note, please contact me PRIVATELY to discuss it further. Please do not try to create a controversy on the list about all of this. Thank you. Best wishes to all. James G.
