Re: Facist old-timers & fun on the list :)
My general rule of thumb when posting is that I ALWAYS consider how many
Groopies my post applies to. If it applies to just a few folks, then I
either don't post it, or mail them privately as a group. (the Groop
team Wizard Scavener Hunt is a good example of this)
My least favorite posts are ones where person X is communicating to
persons Y & Z about something I've never even heard about. For example:
"Hey Alfred, the coolest episode of Carrot Grazers was when Baldy met
Chix for the first time! Pardon my off-topicness." Such a post involves
very few folks (if any!), and they sometimes continue for several posts.
If you use the 200 people in a room talking into the PA system analogy,
it is usually pretty easy to decide who/when to post to.
I think a lot of these sorts of 'problems' (really just
miscommunications) could be reduced by including a FAQ with every
Just my 2 sense per usual,
