Just a couple of suggestions about the use of the Mathnets.  If you hit the
reply button after you read a message on the MathNets, it will be submitted
for posting to all the high schools (or middle schools) in the state.

Many times what you really want to do is to answer a particular person who
posted the original message.  The only way to do that is if they put their
email address in their original message (a nice place is after your name),
which you can copy into a personal message.

So ---

When posting, put your email address so someone can personally respond to

Unless you want to post your response to all teachers on the Net, don't use
the reply button after reading a list-serve message.
