Ah, Netiquette, the bane of the modern age. My two cents is that what we're
looking for are suggestions, rather than Rules, for a group of adults so
that they avoid doing things that are guaranteed to piss off other people.
We all know that talk of partisan politics, evolution vs. creation, and
religion among others are instant flame bait. So, we should avoid it. It's
really that simple. I admit to being an occasional offender, especially when
I'm under the influence of coffee, and honest to Jah I plan on avoiding that
in the future.

Everyone on this list is united by a love of nature and-in-least some
understanding on how it works. If we stay focused on that rather than the
noise and smoke we can easily generate between us on other topics, we can
keep an interesting and fun list going.

Did I mention that a school of stonerollers in a large aquarium is both fun
to watch and a pain in the ass to other fish?
