Seppala News Mailing List

We have set up an email list so that we (and anyone else interested) can openly discus online. The list is devoted to the working, registered Seppala line of Siberian Huskies.

This is an weakly-moderated, public list for the discussion of dogs for sale, studs, breeding, litters born, health care, sled dog racing, mushing, and discussion on the Seppala News newsletter, as well as other subjects pertaining to the Seppala line of Siberian Huskies. While it is certainly permissible to post messages about general sled dog topics and non-Seppala Siberian Husky topics, this list is not intended to replace the more general sled dog and Siberian discussion lists, but instead give us a more "private" area to discuss our special line of Siberians.

Heated discussions will certainly come up, but keep it civil! Disagreement is a human trait, but personal attacks are a human weakness.

We hope you will participate and enjoy the list. We encourage you to not just "lurk" but to introduce yourself and tell us about your dogs. We are a small group, no one need feel left out or unimportant!

If your email software doesn't break digests into individual messages, remember to change the subject of your email when replying to a digest so that other readers can know the subject of your message without reading its contents.

WHAT TO POST

* Replies to questions posted by others.
* Your tips, tricks, and advice for running, racing, breeding Seppalas.

WHAT NOT TO POST
* Topics unrelated to the Seppala line of Siberian Huskies.

LIST ETIQUETTE
If you change your email account, please unsubscribe from the list first. If list messages to your account are returned for more than a few days in a row, you will be unsubscribed. This isn't automatic and its annoying to have your bounced messages forwarded to our technical support email account, so please be courteous and do it yourself.

When replying to a list message, please quote only the part of the message that is relevant---never quote an entire digest.

Never attach files to list messages. If you use email software such as Microsoft Mail, remember to configure it to send unformatted messages to the Internet. If you don't, all of your messages will have undesired attachments.

Do not use long signature blocks, especially if you are a frequent poster. You know your signature block is too long when it's longer than your messages!

Please use your full (real) name when posting to the list.
