Oh yes, definitely. Both on the mailinglists I run and in the
local newsgroups (I'm newsmaster too).

For the mailinglists, it's best to create a webpage that explains
how to behave on the list, and to put the location of that page
into the trailer of /every/ message on the list. Mailman can
do that easily.

For example http://www.radius.cistron.nl/list/

It makes it a lot harder for the clue-challenged to claim that
they didn't know the house-rules of the list. If they do you
can easily say 'you never ever read a message on this list
to the end, so why are you still subscribed anyway ?' :)
