I believe that would be Chapter 13: Encouraging, Sharing and
Responding to Dissension. :-)
Flipping through the book, I see repeating themes as they touch on
the different communites (mailing lists, newsgroups, chat communities,
etc). Things like stay on-topic, no ads if ads are not allowed,
all stuff you and I know by rote. Since the moderator of this list
has already declared the post on-topic, then AFAIC, the situation
is resolved (the book recommends respecting the wishes of your
community moderators, again, common sense stuff).
Personally, if I had not heard about and obtained the book through
other means, I would have been interested in the message and as a
result, interested in inquiring on how to get my hands on a copy
of the book.
The book is pretty basic. Most of it is stuff I already know.
But there are bits here and there of unfamiliar territory and those
are the things I'm interested in reading and learning about.
(does this qualify as a review?)
