Some questions come up time and time again in alt.backrubs. Often the questions are interesting and the answers are not immediately obvious. However, each time one of these questions appears, much bandwidth and reader time is wasted on repetitive responses. This FAQ, divided in six articles, are posted to alt.backrubs every two weeks in an attempt to answer the most common questions, so that discussion can move on to more interesting topics. These articles are also posted to alt.answers and news.answers every four weeks or so.
Your suggestions for changes to these articles are welcome. Please see question 0.2 for information about whom to contact. Question 0.3 is about what changes are planned. The disclaimer is in question 0.6. All of those questions appear below, in section 0. If you are new to Usenet you might find questions 1.4 and 5.2.4 especially helpful.
