I would say that the generic advice that tells new readers
of Usenet newsgroups to spend enough time reading a group
to become accustomed to the dynamics before making a first
post applies equally well to mail lists. There are more
than a few cases where I started reading a group or list
and ended up unsubbing without ever posting because I
decided it didn't suit me.

These members treat everyone like old friends, laying
tongue-in-cheek insults and hard advice on first time posters and
veterans alike. This can be a shocking blast to those new to the
profession and list.
