This article is from the Satellite TV FAQ, by Gary Bourgois firstname.lastname@example.org with numerous contributions by others.
Ask Away. You can post your question right on the net. The only dumb
question is the one you don't ask. We don't mind helping you get started.
Or send me a note: email@example.com and I will try and answer,
and include your question in future versions of this FAQ list.
If you are reading this FAQ in printed form, and do not have a way to write
us on the computer network, we will now answer your questions by postal mail.
However, due to severe financial limitations, we can only comply with your
request for information by mail if you:
1. Include a Stamped Self Addressed Envelope, placing enough postage
to cover the material you are requesting. (if you are asking a
simple question, one stamp is enough, if requesting more detailed
information, please place more postage on your envelope sufficient
to cover return mailing cost)
2. Write on the back of your RETURN envelope a summary of what you are
asking for EVEN if you send a letter. We receive so much mail that
letters and reply envelopes can get mixed up. (Do not write this on
the envelope you are mailing to US in, but on the back of the
envelope going back to you. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. We have
a few envelopes here with no idea what is supposed to go in them.
3. Include a minimum $1 contribution to cover processing your request.
We are a non profit corporation, and the wear and tear on equipment
etc. is eating us alive. Larger donations are TAX DEDUCTIBLE and
will be used to cover expenses involved in information processing.
Some multipage documents, like the SCROUNGER'S guide are quite heavy
and come with a $3 surcharge for copying.
4. Send your question, SASE and Contribution to:
Great White North Inc.
429 Spring Street
Marquette, MI 49855
5. We can not process any mailings that do not comply with the above
6. If you make your request by computer EMAIL, there is no charge.
This mail offer is made only to those who do not have electronic
access. You will receive your REPLY by Email. Do not send me your
postal address in this case.
Just write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
7. We can not send long EMAIL files to Prodigy, so if you are on
that system, your only option is to use the mail method outlined
above unless you are asking a very simple question. Too often
Prodigy rejects our replies because they go over the 6K Prodigy
