      ISTT has a huge membership and we hope you shall all comply with the following guidelines of Netiqutte, so as to enable the group to function smoothly:

      Netiquette and Guidelines

      CAUTION & DISCLAIMER: Content on the forum maybe freely used by members. Members should, therefore, avoid company specific and/or proprietary content in their postings. Moderators only facilitate interactions are not responsible for actions of individual members.

      * We will start with the most important rule of the ISTT Netiquette and that
      is "Think before you post". If what you intend to post will not make
      a positive contribution to the group and be of interest to several
      readers, don't post it! Personal messages to one or two individuals
      should not be posted to the group, use private e-mail instead.

      * ISTT is essentially a forum for professionals in Corporate India to discuss the latest in the business environment and evaluate strategies of Indian companies and focus on the Indian economy in general, the idea being to share experiences and exchange views.

      * Personal mails and individual exchanges should be avoided.

      * When ever you feel like replying to a message and if its intended to the
      person sending the mail, do not use "reply to" button because this will post
      your message to the entire group.

      * Read the group postings for a while before you post anything. This
      helps you to get an understanding of the culture of the group.

      * Don't post test messages - wait until you have something to say.

      * Refrain from sending attachments to the Group. Instead you may upload the file on the 'Files' section of Group's homepage.

      * Be Careful with Humor and Sarcasm. Without the voice inflections
      and body language of personal communications, it is easy for a remark
      meant to be funny to be misinterpreted. Subtle humor tends to get
      lost, so take steps to make sure that people realize you are trying
      to be funny. When posting humorous or sarcastic comments, it is
      conventional to append a smiley, but don't overuse them.

      * When following up an article, quote the minimum necessary to give
      some context to your reply and be careful to attribute the quote to
      the right person.

      * Ensure that the past emails / attachments are "snipped" while replying to postings on this group, to keep the size of your mail under check. Afterall, we shouldn't create junk in the mailboxes of members. If need be, the Header of the past email may be retained to maintain the continuity.

      * Read all of a discussion in progress (called a 'thread') before
      posting replies. Avoid posting "Me Too" messages, where content is
      limited to agreement with previous posts. Avoid being redundant and
      just repeating what has already been said. Also a good rule of thumb
      is that the generally content of a follow-up post should exceed
      quoted content.

      * Avoid sending messages or posting articles which are no more than
      gratuitous replies to replies.

      * Re-read and edit your posting carefully before you post. Check the
      spelling and grammar.

      * Be proud of your postings but don't post just to see your name in
      pixels.

      * Write well. Remember, You are your words on the group. Most people
      on the group will know you only by what you say and how well you say
      it. Take the time to make sure your posting will not embarrass you
      later. Writing is an art that requires practice. Choose your words
      carefully.

      * Cite appropriate references. If you are using facts to support what
      you are saying, state where they came from. Don't take someone else's
      ideas and use them as your own. You don't want someone pretending
      that your ideas are theirs; show them the same respect.

      * Don't wander off-topic, don't ramble and don't send mail or post
      messages solely to point out other people's errors in typing or
      spelling. These, more than any other behavior, mark you as an
      immature beginner.

      * If you are caught in an argument, keep the discussion focused on
      issues rather than the personalities involved.

      * Before asking a question, read the messages already in the group by
      searching the archive.

      * Send personal mail when an answer to a question is for one person
      or a limited group only. However, don't hesitate to post when
      something will be of general interest to the Group members.

      * If you find a personal message has gone to the group, send an
      apology to the person and to the group.

      * If you believe someone has violated ISTT Netiquette, send them a message
      by private e-mail; do not post a follow-up to the post. And be
      polite; they may not realise their mistake or they might be a
      beginner.

      * Please do not use the group as an advertising medium.

      and,

      * Do not blame the moderator for the behavior of the users :).
