[Geology2] File - Rules

Attention Group!

Rule #1 is Rule #1 on all Yahoo groups: NEVER argue with a list-owner or list-moderator! This group is a benevolent dictatorship, NOT a democracy.

Rule #2 is to FOLLOW THE GOLDEN RULE: act as you wish others to act and treat others as you would like to be treated. Failure to follow the Golden Rule will result in our not following the Golden Rule with whomever breaks said Rule.

Rule #3 is there will be ABSOLUTELY NO spamming, trolling, flaming, whining, agitating, cussing or any other anti-social behavior. Violate this rule at the peril of your group membership!

Rule #4 is this group is a POLITICS-FREE and RELIGION-FREE zone. We'll impeach/excommunicate anybody who transgresses!

Rule #5 is STAY ON-TOPIC. We allow for a little bit of flexibility but don't force us to play the heavy and have to clamp down on this behavior.

Rule #6 is AVOID IDLE ON-LIST CHIT-CHAT. Remember there are hundreds of folks on this list and thus keep your posts focused on matters that might interest/edify the group as a whole.

Rule #7 is TRIM YOUR POSTS of excess lineage. Preferably only include the previous message you are responding to if you are indeed responding to previous post(s).

Rule #8 is bring any concerns or complaints you have about anything directly to the list-owners/list-moderators via an OFF-LIST message and DO NOT EVER take matters into your own hands in our stead!

Rule #9 is IF IN DOUBT ... DON'T! If you feel posting a particular remark or item could be a problem then don't do it at all or not until you ask us FIRST!

Rule #10 is USE EMOTICONS! Doing this will cut down on misunderstandings as email is not the best way for human beings to communicate as much nuanced communication such as facial expressions and voice tone are absent in this medium.

Rule #11 is give proper attribution to other groups if you forward to this group any information or a post from another group in part or in whole. It's the courteous thing to do!
