Netiquette / in German Netikette in the Mailing List
(net – Netz and etiquette – Etikette)
When you have just joined the mailing list, read for a while the contributions of the others to
get an impression of the subject and tone of the list.
Wenn Du gerade eingestiegen bist, lies erst mal eine zeitlang mit, damit Du einen Eindruck von
Themen und Ton der Liste bekommst.
When you write your own contributions, keep to the thematic area of the list.
Sobald Du eigene Beitraege schreibst, halte Dich an den Themenkreis der Mailinglist.
When you want to speak to someone on the list about other things, take up direct email contact
with this person.
Wenn Du mit jemandem, den Du in der Liste kennengelernt hast, ueber andere Dinge sprechen willst,
nimm direkten mail-Kontakt auf.
Never criticize the spelling of other participants, there can and will always be some mistakes.
Kritisiere nie die Rechtschreibung eines Teilnehmers, es kann und wird immer ein Tippfehler sein.
Many mail programs quote automatically the mail to which one replies. Please take a couple of
seconds time and delete that which is not necessary for others to realize to what you reply.
Viele Mailprogramme zitieren automatisch die mail, auf die man antwortet. Bitte nimm Dir die paar
Sekunden Zeit und loesche, was nicht unbedingt noetig ist, um zu erkennen, worauf Du antwortest.
Some of the mailing list rules specify „Express yourself briefly“. We have discussed is and
came to the conclusion: a mail can be as long as it is required by the subject.
"Fasse Dich kurz" - so steht es in vielen nettiquettes. Wir haben das diskutiert und sind zum Schluss
gekommen: eine mail darf und soll so lang sein, wie es das Thema benoetigt.
Too many mails пЃЉ пЃЊ . At the moment it is not a problem. But - before you complain or even
leave the list – you don’t have to read everything. You can concentrate only on subjects which
interest you.
So viele Mails пЃЉ пЃЊ . Derzeit besteht bei der Mailinglist dieses Problem noch nicht, aber dennoch bevor Du darueber klagst oder gleich unsubscribierst: Du musst nicht immer alles lesen. Du kannst
Dich auf die subjects beschraenken, die Dich interessieren.
Select a short expressive title for the Subject, not all email programs have enough place for a
long sentence.
Waehle einen praegnanten kurzen Titel fuer das Betreff, denn nicht alle mail-Programme haben genug
Platz fuer einen ganzen Satz.
Do not write anything in the list that you would not say to the other person in clear
consciousness face-to-face in public. Think also, that the mood your contribution brings to the
mailing list will be multiplied there.
Schreibe nichts im Netz, was Du dem anderen nicht auch guten Gewissens ins Gesicht sagen
koenntest, bzw. was Du nicht guten Gewissens in seiner Gegenwart in der Oeffentlichkeit sagen
wuerdest. Bedenke auch, dass die Stimmung, die Dein Beitrag in die Liste traegt, dort vielleicht
vervielfacht wird.

Basic Boolean Search Operators
Is Boolean Search Complicated?
Using Boolean Logic to broaden and/or narrow your search is not as complicated as
it sounds; in fact, you might already be doing it. Boolean logic is just the term used to
describe certain logical operations that are used to combine search terms in many
search engine databases and directories on the Net. It's not rocket science, but it
sure sounds fancy (try throwing this phrase out in common conversation!).
Basic Boolean Search Operators - AND
Using AND narows a search by combining terms; it will retrieve documents that use
both the search terms you specify, as in this example:
Portland AND Oregon
Basic Boolean Search Operators - OR
Using OR broadens a search to include results that contain either of the words you
type in. OR is a good tool to use when there are several common spellings or
synonyms of a word, as in this example:
liberal OR democrat
Basic Boolean Search Operators - NOT
Using NOT will narrow a search by excluding certain search terms. NOT retrieves
documents that contain one, but not the other,of the search terms you enter, as in
this example:
Oregon NOT travel
