I have two comments regarding the Posting Guide:

(1) The link in the following sentence did not work for me:

    Take care when you quote other people's comments to respect their
rights, e.g., as summarized here[a].

[a] http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/help/policy/copyright.htm

Has it been changed to the following?

(2) Regarding the following extract

  `If you feel insulted by some response to a post of yours, don't
make any hasty response in return - you're as likely as not to regret

wouldn't someone who is `as likely as not to regret it' be indifferent
between sending a hasty response and not sending a hasty response? The
intent is perfectly clear but perhaps `you're _more_ likely than not'
is a more probabilistically correct expression?

Thanks for the helpful document -- it is useful reading for this list
as well as more generally.
