    Thou shalt include a clear and specific subject line.

    Thou shalt edit any quoted text down to the minimum thou needest.

    Thou shalt read thine own message thrice before thou sendest it.

    Thou shalt ponder how thy audience might react to thy message.

    Thou shalt check thy spelling and thy grammar.

    Thou shalt not curse, flame, troll, use $ in place of 's', or USE ALL CAPS.

    Thou shalt not anger forum members.

    Thou shalt not use forums for Windows bashing.

    Thou shalt not hijack forum threads.

    When in doubt, save thy message overnight and reread it in the light
    of the dawn.

    He wasn't ever banned, or really ever even close to being banned.  That was an idle threat used by another Niner to get things under control.  You, on the other hand, haven't seemed to ever have contributed anything with substance to Channel 9 and are free to leave whenever you wish.

    I know I've had problems with ieSpell not working properly with the editor, but won't Firefox spell-check for C9 either?

    (oohh.. hang on, if you try to spell-check the subject with ieSpell it'll carry on and check the message editor as well... Wonder why I can't directly check the editor?)

    Who needs spell-checking to know that sentences start with capital letters and end in periods?
