there was a pretty good thread regarding netiquite early on.  for me 
it's all 6 of one, half a dozen of the other(technically speaking).  i 
would search the archives, around the feb time frame, to see what was 
discussed.  i tend to agree with Dan tho, all of my BSD lists and most 
of my other lists adhere to this behaviour.  maybe it's just another 
emacs v. vi flame fest.
