Il GNKSA ovvero la newsreader netiquette

Descrizione: GNKSA = The Good Net-Keeping Seal of Approval.
A few years ago, Ron Newman wrote a document intended to describe minimal standards for decent net-behaviour, in an effort to encourage newsreader authors to write better behaving newsreaders. Thus came the Good Net-Keeping Seal of Approval, GNKSA 1.2 in short, into being.
Things changed rapidly, however: a vast army of new users stormed the Internet and Usenet, often using new generations of tools that displayed forms of bad behaviour unimagined before. This called for a serious effort to bring the GNKSA up to date; for that reason, I, Jeroen Scheerder, took the liberty to undertake the venture of revamping GNKSA.
After I asked him, Ron kindly handed the GNKSA off to me. The result of all this: GNKSA 2.0.
