With regards to posting standards, I'd like to see more emphasis being placed on all family names (and nothing else) being written in all-capitals and making sure that every post is signed with at least a last name. Ideally, the Moderator(s) would return-to-sender any posts that do not comply with these long-standing standards.
It would also be very helpful - to those of us scanning the daily digests - if anyone asking for a translation (whether via ViewMate or other means) of a document would please include the (known or presumed) family name linked with that document, so that most of us don't need to go to ViewMate to see if the document might be of personal interest.
