I wonder if "no need for fancy formatting" is a little too permissive?
 +
Someone could say to themselves, "There may be no NEED but where's
 +
the harm?" I suggest "Fancy formatting is unhelpful, and to be avoided."
 +
 +
Also, the heading "Please remember you are posting to a forum" might
 +
be better put the other way around, as below:
 +
 +
"Please reply privately if the content is not of general interest"

In which case the text could continue:
 +
"If you post to the list, it will be read by a lot of users, not..." (continuing as it is now)

Little things ...

In Moderator Responsibilities "The main gaul of a moderator" should be "The main goal of a moderator" ?? KathyW 04:01, 1 August 2006 (CEST)

Yuv's suggestion ...

Please be ethical in your postings. "This means you should fully disclose all vested interests (professional, commercial or others) and your relationship to the topic you comment on."

It does sound better ... any other comments? KathyW 04:10, 1 August 2006 (CEST)

I wonder if "no need for fancy formatting" is a little too permissive? Someone could say to themselves, "There may be no NEED but where's the harm?" I suggest "Fancy formatting is unhelpful, and to be avoided."

Also, the heading "Please remember you are posting to a forum" might be better put the other way around, as below:
