For those of you that don’t know, a few months back I created the sybase-dba-moderated Yahoo Group / mailing list due to the enormous amount of spam on the sybase-dba mailing list.
When I was finally able to convince Yahoo to contact owner of the sybase-dba mailing list, Yahoo informed me that the owner expressed no inclination to remove any of the spam / spammers from the mailing list. So I created sybase-dba-moderated.
We came up with a few rules:
- only Sybase related topics
- job postings are allowed if for Sybase positions
- debates are fine but no flaming is allowed
As of right now, we have over 200 members (it is free) from all over the world 🙂
