   Anyone flaming -=ANYONE=- over this list will be dealt with as per the
R&R (See attachement.)  Anyone who uses the list to get adresses to flame
will also be dealt wiht.  Arguements should not be taken offlist to flame
one another.
   That is:  Person A says something Person B does not like.
Person B should NOT then send mail privately to Person A in the form of a
   Anyone who gets a flame should fwd that to me at this adress.  be
certain to include all headers.  This is something I cimply won't
tolerate.  Hopefly, the list should remain entirely friendly.  THat
includes offlist stuff.

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 discresion.

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. discretion.

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.
