I recently submitted a patch to the gimp-web list addressing this page. I added
a link to the etiquette section below. I considered moving the etiquette
above the mailing lists but didn't want to put the page's primary information
the bottom! I also added a reference to the FAQ in the wiki.

I think this is a very good idea. We should also link to the FAQ directly. We
could also utilise the monthly list subscription reminder.

I think that it's going to seriously put off anyone who's still not adjusted to
free software culture. I'd much rather we have our own version that concisely
and sympathetically addresses the same points. It could go on the
mail_lists.html page. I thought I'd included something already in the patch,
it looks like I forgot about it.
