This is not quite an official warning, but I want to head things off
quickly: flames are not permitted on BayPIGgies. For the purpose of this
list, flames are defined as excessivly strong language and/or insults
directed at specific people or groups of people.
While BayPIGgies is not a professional group, many people use the group
for professional purposes, and the language we use should reflect that.
Note: although this message is triggered by the exchange between Marilyn
and Rick, I think several people have been overusing heated language
lately (and I'm probably at least somewhat guilty). I hope we don't
drive anyone away because of that.
