Re: RFOR: Is LGDC really crap?

yes, this is really what's needed.  Some specific guidelines for news
postings.  For the format, I'm guessing this is just a blogger type setup,
so text guidelines would be all you need there.  Or we could post the news
on the mailing list before posting on the site, so that everyone will kind
of get a feel of what's posting material, and what's not.
