# On Posting
-Before asking a question on a list, first make an effort to find the answer
-to your question. When you ask your question, (1) be details, and (2) demonstrate
-that you have made an effort, e.g., "I am having trouble frobbing the foo. I
-searched the web and only found information regarding how to frob a bar, but
-that seems unrelated."
