    From Richard Webb@1:116/901 to all on Mon Dec 17 13:34:11 2012
    This echo once again has a moderator/caretaker who actually
    participates in Fidonet.
    For those of you who might have tuned in by just linking to
    everything available at your uplink, here's some basic echo
    guidelines for you.

    THe purpose of this conference is support for the squish mail conference processor written by Scut Dudley.
    Squish is a companion to Maximus BBS and is a full featured mail processing package.

    MEssages posted in this conference should pertain to squish and squish related software. some ancillary packages such as
    sqafix may have their own echoes. THose echomail conferences may be inactive however, so discussion of any software
    which can work with squish format message bases is permitted and encouraged.

    Usual rules of echomail etiquette apply at all times in this echomail conference. NO test posts, etc. When a thread drifts off topic for the echo move it to an appropriate conference or to private mail.

    NO widget wars will be tolerated. THis means operating systems, mail processor packages and bbs software. THis does not mean that a discussion which addresses strengths and weaknesses of various pieces of software is
    automatically deemed off topic however. Those with common sense shouldn't have
    to be told when the line is crossed.

    Should there be a violation of these rules it will normally be addressed in netmail by the moderator(s) of this echomail conference. At most you will see a
    post to the thread from a moderator requesting that the thread be brought back into compliance with these posted rules and guidelines. This message
    will be addressed globally to all. Any other communication regarding
    rules violations or moderation issues will be handled by netmail only. Since
    this echomail conference is only relevant to system operators and those of point systems it is felt that netmail should be sufficient for dealing with
    other moderation issues. Posters who violate conference rules and guidelines
    more than once within the same thread may be subject to possible bannishment from the conference.
    I'd prefer not to have to go that route however. Difficult
    to enforce if somebody's intent on circumventing it, and
    most reasonable folks shouldn't need it.

    Gating this echomail conference outside Fidonet is not permitted.
