...From SpamCop Forum thread "Dealing with 'undeliverable mail returns'." linear posts #3 and #4:

<snip>I naively used the incorrect forum because I thought I wanted to find out 'How to' deal with the problem. My fault for not digesting the terms of use of the 'How to use..' forum.

Thank you for this reply in particular. This is the type of information (why you chose a specific forum, etc.) we keep trying to collect to improve these forums.
...The current description of the general "How to use ..." Forum is:
System parts & Functions not fully explained under an existing Help menu / option
...Options for improvement (please add others you can think of):
  • Change name of "How to ..." to "Instructions for using"
  • Change description to something like "System parts & Functions not fully explained under an existing Help menu / option -- NOT for 'how to' questions, please post those in the appropriate forum on the main index (http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?act=idx)"

Glad you had time to think about it? I like "Instructions for USING.."

How about the next part reading: "spamcop systems and functions - compiled by other users. How to do anything else should be posted in appropriate forum on main index."

first shot made ....????

...Better but my guess is that people will still see the "How to" and say to themselves, "ah, here is where I should post a question about how to do something ...." I'd suggest eliminating the "How to" altogether or, at least, not having those as the first two words.... :) <g>
