cs.211 where it says
Use the newsgroup to post questions on the material or assignments, and to answer posted questions. Posting to the newsgroup rather than emailing the staff will often get you an answer much faster. If you need help on an error message, then you should post the exact error message and the line of code where it occurred. Even better, try to write a small program that replicates the error, and post that.
Never post complete answers to homework, even broken ones. You may post solutions to problems from the textbook that are not homework.
You are encouraged to post useful or interesting links that are relevant to the class may also be posted. Just try to keep all discussion on topic.
