Rules and Guidelines for The Native Fish Conservancy List (NFC at actwin_com)

   Spam is defined as followed:  Any unwelcome commercial posting, or
multiple postings of the same materiel.  (Such as posting the same message
5 times.)  The following exceptions exist:
-=Relevant=- Articles (Such as RR's frequent posting of identical articles
on native fishes.)
The Trading Post: This is a collective post of people looking for fishes.
There is a section for commercial messages.
Accidental repeats:  Your router is lagging, and a message didn't make it
through for 8 hours.  You repeated it.  Both got sent.  As long as its
obviously not purposeful, it won't get you in trouble.  

First Offense:  Warning.
Second Offense: Suspension from list for time period of administrators
Third: Permanent removal.

Extremely offensive material may result in immediate and permanent
removal.  Examples include sex or pornographic advertisements, chain
letters, and triangle/pyramid/etc. scams.  These will also result in a
nice little letter sent to your servers administrator, which may result in
revocation of your account there.  


   A flame is any insulting or in/flam/atory remark.  This is something
meant to intentionally anger or upset someone else.  This is at the
receiving parties and/or list admin.'s discretion.  

First and Second Offense:  Warnings.
Third and Forth  Offense:  Suspension for time period of admin.
Fifth:  Removal.

   Watch what you say, and you won't get in trouble.  Light comments will
generally be ignored.  


   Keep the material in posts relevant.  Some wandering of topics is bound
to occur, and will generally be ignored.  Keep the politics to a minimum.
Completely off topic posts should not be made.  

General Offense: Notice to keep on topic to list.
Continued: Warnings.
Regular: Suspension.
Continued Regular:  Removal.

   Again, this is at discretion.  Yes, its a fish list.  If you have a
question about fish that is off topic: You may send it to me at
JWiegert at nexus_v-wave.com.  If I can't answer it myself, I'll get it
answered, or just make up something that sounds good.


  Harrassment by other means:
    You can get a list of all members of the list by sending mail to
Majordomo at actwin_com with the command who nfc in the body.  Use of this
list to spam/flame or otherwise bother list members will result in
immediate removal and/or contact to your site admin.  The same goes for
just sending mail to someone whos recently posted.  Messages of this
nature should be forwarded WITH HEADERS to Jwiegert at nexus_v-wave.com

  Correcting the Admin:
     The admin, me, is always right.  If I say the sky is orange, its
orange.  Don't argue with me. :)  

  Final Comments:
     The list has been more or less flame free, and, aside from some
bizarre situations (Tribbles!) mostly on topic.  We'd like to keep it that
way.  Everyone makes mistakes, and they'll generally be forgiven.  As long
as you're not out to make an ass of yourself, you shouldn't get into too
much trouble.  I want the list to be enjoyable and informative.  I'm not
going to knock around heads unless they become problematic.  
     Any comments/suggestions/etc should be sent to my mailbox directly.
This will not be discussed on list.
