 Mail sent to the entire list should relate to women AND computing. Women on the list have access to other resources for technical information and for information about women in general. Systers is for women in computing to discuss topics that relate to being a woman and being a computing professional. We allow people to ask for help on purely technical topics — so long as the requester reminds respondents to send mail directly to her, not the list — because many women feel uncomfortable asking certain types of questions on lists dominated by men. Commercial messages are never appropriate. This includes offers to sell or give away items that belong to an individual Syster or to provide commercial services. Mail sent to the entire list should relate to women AND computing.

 We're here to support each other, not put each other down. It's fine to disagree, but keep it to the subject matter and not against someone'​s point of view. Diversity in thinking and discussion is healthy. Changes are, you'll not only learn more about the topic and other'​s views, but you'll learn more about yourself. ​ We're here to support each other, not put each other down.
