Good afternoon,

I would like to start by thanking everyone for his or
her feedback on this issue.  As a result of the
feedback, I feel I need to clarify some policies that
have been in place and give some general use
guidelines for the Raven's Fort list.

1)  This list is to be used for Raven's Fort
information.  This list was not intended for personal
issues or issues regarding other organizations aside
from the SCA.  Here are some questions to ask yourself
before you post: There are 70 or so people that are
subscribed to this list, do you want all of them to
know this information?  Is this related to RF or SCA,
ie demos, fighter practice, guild meetings, and things
of that nature?  Could this statement be interpreted
as sarcastic, snide, vulgar or rude?

2) Airing personal issues such as grudges, etc will
not be tolerated.  The following is the revised policy
effective April 9, 2002.  It will be reposted monthly
so everyone is very clear about the consequences. The
easiest way to avoid this is discretion, if someone
attacks you, wait.  Do not reply, I know this is hard,
but that means the person who initiated the attack is
the only one with repercussions.

This policy applies to personal drama and slander.
a) First incident: If an individual submits an
objectionable post, they and anyone who responds will
be publicly warned on the list.

b) Second incident: This is progressive, 1hr or 6
months, it doesn't matter.  If the exchange begins
again, or the same person begins a new incident, they
are off of the list for 30 days.  This also applies to
anyone who posts more than one reply before I can warn
him or her.

c) Third incident: This also is progressive. Same
situation as above, off for 60 days.

d) Fourth incident: This is also progressive.  Same
situation as above, off permanently.

There is also another situation that will get a member
removed from the list permanently, with NO WARNING.
If you make terroristic threats, which include any
kind of bodily harm, you will be removed and not
allowed back on the list.  I think everyone on this
list is an adult and knows the difference between
good-natured fighter threats (Death to Trimaris! and
fighter practice references) and actual threats.  I
know I do.

I hope I have made this very clear. I don't have any
intention of being a censor or judge for this list; my
expectation is that EVERYONE in this Barony is mature
and intelligent enough to abide by these simple rules.
 Don't be ugly to each other.  That's it.  And if you
feel compelled to be ugly, do it in private.  That's
not cowardly, that's being honorable and dealing with
your personal life in a manner in which people can
respect you.  I'm not asking everyone to be best
friends, just don't air dirty laundry on the list.

As for the Keif, Lorraine and Marius situation, I have
re-evaluated the situation, and after much
consideration, I am adjusting the sanctions:

Lorraine has been warned, Keif is off for 30 days,
Marius for 60 days.
This is in accordance with the new policy as stated

Everyone needs to remember that this list is a
privilege, not a right.  If anyone has any questions
or would like to discuss this e-mail, please contact
