MAP-EXTRA: POP QUIZ #1


     "This is a test of the Emergency Broadband System. This
      is only a test. If this had been an actual emergency,
      your local newsgroups and mailing lists -- in voluntary
      co-operation with state and local officials -- would have
      posted alarmist spams announcing imminent death of the
      Internet. This concludes this test of the Emergency
      Broadband System. Thank you." -- Malinda McCall


DIRECTIONS:

Please read these directions carefully. This quiz has four parts:

     - five multiple guess questions
     - five true/false questions
     - three short answer questions
     - two bonus questions

The answers to this quiz will be e-mailed to you tomorrow. Do not,
repeat DO NOT send your answers to Patrick or to the list. This
quiz is entirely self-graded :)


PART ONE: MULTIPLE GUESS

Please read each paragraph carefully, and then select the response that
best answers the question asked in the paragraph.

     1.   I'm subscribed to the 'squirrel' LISTSERV mailing list
          (SQUIRREL@UA1VM.UA.EDU). I just heard a story about how
          an energetic squirrel once crashed the mainframe at
          Mississippi State University during registration (a
          true story) and I want to share this information with
          everyone on the 'squirrel' mailing list. What address
          should I send my e-mail letter to if I want the letter
          to be distributed to everyone on the "squirrel" list?

               a. LISTSERV@UA1VM.UA.EDU
               b. SQUIRREL@UA1VM.UA.EDU
               c. PCRISPE1@UA1VM.UA.EDU
               d. PRESIDENT@WHITEHOUSE.GOV

     2.   I'm looking for a list of all known LISTSERV lists. What
          LISTSERV command should I use to get such a list?

               a. REVIEW GLOBAL
               b. INDEX GLOBAL
               c. LISTS GLOBAL
               d. GET GLOBAL

     3.   Okay, I just got the "list of lists." I found a neat list
          called "navigate" but the list of lists only shows the
          address as NAVIGATE@UBVM. What address should I send my
          subscribe command to?

               a. NAVIGATE@UBVM
               b. NAVIGATE@UBVM.BITNET
               c. LISTSERV@UBVM.BITNET
               d. PCRISPE1@UA1VM.UA.EDU

     4.   I want to subscribe to the alt.abuse.recovery newsgroup.
          I sent a e-mail letter to LISTSERV@UA1VM.UA.EDU with the
          command SUBSCRIBE ALT.ABUSE.RECOVERY JOE STUDENT, and I got
          back an error message saying that "alt.abuse.recovery" is
          unknown to the LISTSERV. What's going on?

               a. alt.abuse.recovery is full, and LISTSERV can not
                  find any room to add you
               b. alt.abuse.recovery is a Usenet newsgroup; you have
                  to subscribe to the group from a Usenet reader
               c. alt.abuse.recovery does not exist
               d. the squirrels have eaten the alt.abuse.recovery
                  newsgroup.

     5.   How can I unsubscribe from the Roadmap workshop?

               a. send an e-mail letter to ROADMAP@UA1VM.UA.EDU
                  which says UNSUB * in the body of your letter.
               b. send an e-mail letter to PCRISPE1@UA1VM.UA.EDU
                  which says UNSUB * in the body of your letter.
               c. send an e-mail letter to LISTSERV@UA1VM.UA.EDU
                  which says UNSUB * in the body of your letter.
               d. bug Patrick until he drops you from the workshop.


PART TWO: TRUE OR FALSE

Read each sentence carefully, and then determine if the sentence is
true or false.

     6.  TRUE OR FALSE     There is nothing wrong with giving my best
                           friend my password.

     7.  TRUE OR FALSE     WRITING IN ALL CAPS IS CONSIDERED TO BE GOOD
                           NETIQUETTE.

     8.  TRUE OR FALSE     The word "squirrel" would be an excellent
                           password.

     9.  TRUE OR FALSE     Letters to a LISTSERV list should be sent to
                           the LISTSERV address.

     10. TRUE OR FALSE     LISTSERV commands should be sent to the list
                           address.


PART THREE: SHORT ANSWER

11.  One of my friends just e-mailed me a chain letter offering me
     good luck so long as I send the chain letter to ten additional
     people. Heck, there are several *hundred* people subscribed to
     each of the Usenet newsgroups and LISTSERV lists. Why can't I
     just forward the chain letter to these groups?








12.  Patrick's dad said "DON'T include the entire contents of a
     previous posting in your reply(s)." Why *can't* I do this?







13.  If someone spams a list that I am on, what should I do? Why
     shouldn't I just send my angry replies to the list?
