ODO - Orchid Discussion Online
Orchid Discussion Online (ODO) is a discussion list in digest
form, conducted via email. For those of you not familiar with
such lists, basically, conversations are carried on between
many people via email, thru us. Subscribers (it's free, btw)
receive an email consisting of a number of messages from
other subscribers. Each separate message within the digest
is replied to, as needed, and the rest discarded before
returning to ODO. Messages such as this are then assembled
into another digest, which is emailed to all the subscribers,
and the cycle repeats.
There are very few rules to keep in mind with respect to
The topic is Orchids and anything that has to do with them.
No flames. If you can't disagree while remaining civil, the
message won't be distributed. This list is intended for those
that want to learn and teach.
No commercial postings. We define "commercial" as any posting
offering something for sale. It doesn't matter if you have a
business license or not. There are other forums where goods
can be offered. You may inform users about the whereabouts of
goods from Orchid growers, suppliers, etc as long as you have
no connection with, or stand to benefit from, the company or
person in question. If you are selling goods and someone on
the list is looking for what you have, email them directly.
Sig files of 5 lines or less are acceptable. This is where
you may advise others that you have a list of items for sale
or trade if you wish.
DO NOT send postings to ODO which are HTML or MIME encoded.
Because of the time involved in editing such messages, we
will return them to the sender for correction. Not sure?
Check your mailer's configuration for a checkbox that
might say "HTML" or "MIME". If checked, uncheck it. It there's
only a box that says something like "Text Only", make sure
Most importantly, if you have information to share, please do!
Mailing lists such as ODO can only work if people are asking
and answering. Lurking is welcome, but if there's a sparcity
of messages at times, there's an easy solution :)
Each ODO subscriber must determine whether or not the information
being offered by others on the list is appropriate for his or her
use. Venger's Orchids will not be responsible for your use of any
information presented in the digest.
Venger's Orchids reserves the right to make a determination as to
what material is suitable for posting and also to change a subscriber's
status at any time.
