I believe I did receive a copy of the FAQ, although I'm not entirely sure..
I generally delete such things on receipt, with the (doubtless mistaken)
belief that I've a good enough understanding of general netiquette and so
forth.  And I did have a peruse of the list web site before joining up, anyhow.

Nothing more salacious, more's the pity. ;)
