There's no accounting for bad manners sometimes ;) but there is a possible
argument for this cardinal rule of the list not being obvious enough - a
really obvious hyperlinked warning on the signup page would make it totally
clear and obvious; it could say "Remember the etiquette: DO NOT TOP POST OR
YOU WILL BE BANNED FROM THE LIST" in big red allcaps, and its link could
point to a locked forum thread explaining why and highlighting the etiquette
they must abide by. Further threads could be opened to discuss this -
perhaps in their own dedicated Rockbox Discussion Etiquette subforum.

That's why I think a forum URL would serve this purpose better than a static
archive thread link, which would necessitate further emails to the list to
discuss down the line (whereas you can effectively corral discussion on this
topic in just one topic, and dip into it as you see fit).

And it would segregate talk about the list and talk of the list, allowing
the volume to decrease and relevancy to increase once again :)
