One thing I should add to my criteria:

To convey the impression of being civilized, it also helps to read messages carefully before responding. Otherwise the authors may feel obliged to restate and explain their point unnecessarily. (Many messages do not deserve reading carefully, but all the less they deserve a reply.) Sorting posters into drawers and writing "blindly" to a whole drawer is very bad style.
