The AB(M)A FAQ [SWong, Keikai]
Welcome to the AB(M)A community!
Before asking questions in the group, make sure to read this FAQ and search the abma.d web forums at http://abma.x-maru.org/bb/. The AB(M)A community is full of very nice and helpful people. Asking questions for which the information can easily be found in these resources, however, is generally considered poor netiquette and can easily be avoided.
The content of this FAQ is a compilation of original articles, posts, and user submissions. Those sections that discuss rules and guidelines represent, as closely as possible, a concensus amongst the "regulars". Where no concensus can be found, the FAQ tries to relate the various points of view. This FAQ is not based upon the personal opinions of its individual maintainers.
A Mini-FAQ is posted by Netgear on a regular basis with enough information to get most newbies started. This big FAQ has not just technical info on how to use newsgroup for downloading, but also have notes on netiquette and hopefully helpful information on various things that crops up on the newsgroups every now and then.
