This is a reminder of some of the changes that the Ansteorran list is
under that other lists are not. The reason for this reminder is due to
increased numbers of articles that are hitting these filters and thus
not being posted to the list. There are also a very large number of
articles that are just barely under the threshold for the filters and
are just squeaking by.
The recent changes to the charter for the list are:
o Personal responses to messages should be kept to a minimum on the list.
By default, the mail will return to the mailing list, so before sending
the message, try to decide if it is of interest to the entire list.
If you want a personal response, please include your email address in
the message since some mail gateways will remove this information
automagickally. (Despite how against internet "standards" this is.)
o While it is great to give someone word fame for their actions or
words, it is inappropriate to mention that they should receive an
award or to question why they have been denied an award.
o If you wish to call someone to task for an action they committed,
talk to the individual or those who know them. Do not try to use
public humiliation to motivate them into action.
o Do not spread "ugly" rumors here. Even if you think you know it with
100% certainty, do not bring it here as it is inappropriate.
o Do not mention or insinuate that someone has performed an illegal
act that they have not been convicted of. It is up to the courts to
decide if they are guilty or not. Wait for their decision.
o If there is an investigation or trial going on, do not mention it
here or ask for help regarding it *unless* you are acting with the
courts permission and/or authority. (ie. investigating officer,
prosecuting or defending attorney, etc) If you are acting with the
courts authority, simply ask for those who know them to contact
you. Do not state what the suspected charges are.
o Do not intentionally mail bomb the list or any of its members. This
includes, but is not limited to, repetitive messaging, large
undesired messages, and java/html/etc programs. These people are
your friends and family, please treat them as such.
o Bouncing email will be dealt with such that: those members of the
main list who bounce email for more than one hour will be moved to
the digest version; those members of the digest list who bounce
email for more than one digest will be removed; those members of
both lists who bounce email for more than one hour will be removed
from both lists.
o Proper editing of your message should be done before sending it to
the list. This includes editing out old information that is
not relevant as well as editing the list trailer. (ie. Go to
In addition to the above, the Estrella incident is not allowed to be
discussed due to the potential for ugliness and the personal
attachment associated to it of the posters.
I thank you for your time and adherence to the above guidelines.
