This is a periodic reminder to subscribers of the DCHAS-L list of some of the ways you can help maintain the quality of the list for all involved. Key news in this are:
- Help maintain the subject line of your messages as a useful indication of the content of your message. If the topic has drifted and the subject line doesn't reflect the gist of your comment, please change the subject line appropriately.
- Consider whether a specific message is better sent to the list as a whole (1500+ people) or to a specific individual.
- As a reminder, lab events from the google headlines of special note are posted to the Division's twitter feed **At_Symbol_Here**acsdchas for easier access. The catalog of all events can be found at

My thanks to everyone who participates in the list.

- Ralph

DCHAS-L is the e-mail list of the Division of Chemical Health and Safety of the American Chemical Society. It is intended to facilitate the conduct of division business and provide the opportunity for members to make contacts with other members to share technical questions.

List membership is for division members and, on a six month trial basis, non-members interested in divisional activities. This list is moderated to ensure that discussions do not stray from its intended purpose, but no technical review of the material on the list should be inferred from this editorial process.

As this list is a public activity of the Division of Chemical Health and Safety, we expect that list discussions will be conducted in a professional tone. Information presented on the list is provided by the person writing the e-mail based solely on the information given in the question they are responding to. For this reason, e-mail list postings should not be considered professional advice, but rather helpful hints on issues to consider in addressing the question.

In this context, people who respond to a listserv posting should think about what they write and what the impact might be if their words are taken out of context. While all are encouraged to have a free exchange of information, those who participate in these discussions have a responsibility to consider the impact of their response.

The list is managed by Divisional secretary, Ralph Stuart . List traffic can be as high as 5 and 10 messages/day. If you prefer to receive all of the day's postings in a single e-mail, you can sign up for the DIGEST format or to note receive DCHAS-L e-mail. Contact Ralph for assistance with this.

Thanks for your interest in the Division of Chemical Health and Safety!

Ralph Stuart
