How many times do people have to cite this stupid thing before someone
removes it from the website?

I think it's a good idea. I'm not a DD, but I don't appreciate getting dupe messages from the list. procmail is not set up to handle them, and I read the vast majority of the lists I post to. I only wish non-Debian lists had the same policy.

Ignoring that particular provision, it contains useful tips such as
only post in English (on non-localized lists), use the proper list, and don't send HTML email. These are all things I think we should encourage on Debian lists, and on lists in general.
