I have been on the mailing list for a number of years - I do not recall
how many, but over 5, most likely longer.

I have never found the family names in the signature to be helpful
or meaningful. I do have over 150k "relatives" on the
Ancestry DNA matches, I do find that somewhat helpful, but only
the first 300-400 matches.

With more and more awareness of data mining, I still see no reason to provide
more information via e-mails than necessary.

CUKIER, BRIF, LISABETZKI, SKLAVIR and their various spellings and abbreviated
forms. There are at least 4, 2, 5(and various shortenings), 3 of each of these that
I actually know of.

When you start to read readin,
how do you know the fellow that
wrote the readin,
wrote the readin right?

JewishGen got to be a important genealogy site by having a limited but strongly encouraged set of rules for the discussion group. Rule such as surname capitalization and informative titles, certainly aided readership growth and retention. These rules certainly are as significant to group success as the 8 noted in this thread. Without group success there will be nothing to moderate.
