PIGEONS MAILING LIST (PML) POLICIES & DISCLAIMER

                                                 [Updated 01/06]

 

             As a subscriber to the PML email list, you AGREE to abide by

                     the following POLICIES and DISCLAIMERS.

 

 

Membership to the PML is a MEMBERS ONLY privilege, and failure to adhere to

the following policies may result in your membership being TERMINATED.

 

*****************
1)  Only messages that are directly pertaining to the discussion of
    PIGEONS are to be posted publicly to the PML.

2)  DO NOT SLANDER or criticize publicly on the mailing list.
Be sure any messages posted about another person or entity are
in fact true.  We all come from different backgrounds with
different levels of education and experiences. Please do not
criticize anyone for their "opinions" as we are all entitled.
In the words of a member presently on our mailing list: "Every one
is entitled to a civilized opinion and a civilized reply. The
indignation should be left at home!"
*****************

3)  DO NOT SWEAR or use curse words on the PML.  There are many men, 

women AND CHILDREN that read the PML daily.

*****************

4)  COMMERCIAL ADVERTISING ON THE PML is forbidden without

prior clearance.  Please direct these advertisements to

PigeonRing@Gmail.com  for  prior clearance to be forwarded to the

PML accordingly.

The POSTING of COMMERCIAL ADVERTISEMENTS directly to the

PML may result in your removal from the PML.

 

PLEASE NOTE:  It is OK to post the following directly to the PML:

 

a)    A private pigeon related sale of personal items or birds.

b)    A PUBLIC pigeon related event, such as an AUCTION

      or Convention.

*****************

5)  Do not send ATTACHMENTS or FILES with your messages to

the PML.  There is a message size limitation of 200 lines set, and  

they will be rejected and bounced back to you if exceeding this.

*****************

6) To promote universal access to the mailing list messages, when

posting to the mailing list be sure that your email program is set to

 send messages as "plain text." You should not send messages as

HTML or RTF (rich text format) to a mailing list. In most instances you

can control the format by adjusting the settings in your mail program.


*****************

7)  DO NOT QUOTE anything but pertinent text on a response to a

previous posting when you are submitting a message to the MAILING 

LIST.  It is simple to avoid this; highlight and delete any 

unnecessary stuff before you send a reply, especially things like

signature files and forwarding gobbledy-gook. You should, in fact, 

only quote the stuff that directly pertains to the new message 

you're sending. (In other words, if someone sends a message 

with 10 points in it, and you only want to comment on one, you

don't need to quote the other nine.) It takes only a minute to

completely remove the previous text and is much nicer for everyone 

who receives it.

*****************

8)  Do not criticize anyone for asking questions about or starting 

discussions about topics that have been previously discussed on 

the PML. There are many new pigeon fanciers joining our PML on 

a regular basis.  Please support their inquiries and sometimes 

very basic questions, for if our hobby/sport is to grow, we must

help along the "newbies"!

*****************

9) TYPE A RELEVANT "SUBJECT" LINE for your message.  Many

posts have a  Subject line of "PIGEONS-LIST Digest - ...", which

doesn't reflect  the subject at all!  It doesn't take much to make sure

the subject  follows the original posted message, and it eases the

indexing of  previous posts for referencing.

To do this, simply click on the text within the SUBJECT section and

delete it, then type in an inviting simple phrase that would invite 

others to read that section.  See HEADERS topic to follow.

HEADERS

All posts to the list should have the appropriate header in the

subject line. The headers are listed below. They should be in all 

capital letters and followed by a colon.  Because this list has a 

high volume of traffic using headers allows people to easily sort 

out messages they are and are not interested in.

All message topics should look like the following example:

RACING: electronic timer systems.

Some topics are:

ADMIN: List owner use only

ALERT: Important news, Legislative updates, etc.

EVENTS: Races, Shows, etc.

GENINFO: Products, updates, news stories, funny incidents, etc.

RACING: Racing, training, clocks, race results, flight forecasts.

SHOW: discussions about fancy pigeons and shows

BREEDING: Pedigrees, breeding questions, etc.

HEALTH: Medical questions or info, Vitamins, Medications.

FEEDING: All aspects of pigeon feeding.

LOFTS: design and discussion of the pigeon loft.

RESCUE: Pigeons Found, Lost, that need homes, Rescue group info.

OTHER: This is where messages not labeled with topics will be.

HEADER use is MANDATORY. If you ever have a question about which

HEADER topic to use feel free to contact me for help.

*****************

10) Remember that list policy and US copyright law requires you 

to get an author's permission BEFORE you forward their work to 

this list (or to verify that an author is truly "unknown" or 

"anonymous"). It also requires that you get permission from the 

authors of posts TO this list before you forward them elsewhere.
