>> Global Straw Building Network
>> email discussion list HELP file
>>
>> The GSBN is a small email list composed of representatives of regional
>> organizations and other non-affiliated key individuals involved in the
>> general advancement of straw-bale and other straw-use building materials
>> and techniques. The intentionally small number of members range from
>> highly
>> experienced professionals to well informed laypeople.
>>
>> The GSBN was conceived as hub of communication: each member of the list
>> intended to be a conduit, conveying the material posted to the list to
>> their respective organizations and communities... and in the same way
>> sharing applicable material from their organizations and communities with
>> the GSBN.
>>
>> It's a dual-function device. First, as a somewhat mundane information
>> sharing forum of a principally organizational and clerical nature; second,
>> and more exciting, as a thinktank about infrastructure and large issues -
>> as opposed (in both functions) to a basic how-to forum, which already
>> exists elsewhere.
>>
>> However, we don't play hard-and-fast to any particular set of rules. For
>> example, it's entirely within the scope of this body to discuss ideas that
>> could represent significant changes in best practices before disseminating
>> them as a thoroughly considered presentation in more widely attended and -
>> without wanting to sound demeaning - typically less knowledgeable forums.
>>
>> In practice, the GSBN is very lightly trafficked with only occasional
>> announcements, referrals, tidbits, and questions. Sometimes a month or
>> more
>> might go by with nothing from the list. It might be considered an
>> under-utilization, but the really important thing is that if and when a
>> truly vital need for this forum occurs, we're here and we're ready. In the
>> meantime, don't be timid about making appropriate use of it.
>>
>> The costs of operating the list have lately been underwritten by The Last
>> Straw Journal in exchange for use of the GSBN as an advisory board and
>> technical editing arm.
>>
>>
>> Please read the list guidelines (see below) before engaging in discussion.
>> In addition, familiarize yourself with how the list operates, especially
>> if
>> you've never participated in an Internet email discussion group before.
>> It's a good idea to save this message somewhere so you know how to

>>
>> When dealing with a listserver, there are two types of messages, namely,
>> COMMANDS and POSTS. Unlike traditional listservers which require the
>> use of numerous email addresses, we have simplified the process by
>> allowing for both both COMMANDS and POSTS to be sent to the same address.
>>
>> COMMANDS
>>
>> These e-mail messages are intended to cause some action to occur, such as
>> subscribing the FROM address to a mailing list.  Commands are usually one
>> or
>> two word phrases which should be entered in the SUBJECT field of the
>> message.
>> Any other fields are ignored... it doesn't matter what you put in them.
>> On
>> this list,
>> subscribe commands are sent to a moderator for approval.
>>
>> The following commands are accepted:
>>
>> subscribe
>> forwards your request to a moderator for approval
>> you will then receive all posts as they are received
>> you are then allowed to post from that address
>>
>> unsubscribe
>> removes your e-mail address from the list of subscribers
>> you will no longer receive any posts
>> you are no longer allowed to post
>>
>> subscribe digest
>> switches you to digest mode

>>> He is just finishing up a very comprehensive overview article on sb codes
