ListServer Rules

By using the IIMHL ListServer, you agree that you have read and will follow the rules and guidelines set for these peer discussion lists. You also agree to reserve list discussions for topics best suited to the medium.

As with any community, there are guidelines governing behavior on the ListServer. For instance, violating antitrust regulations, libeling others, selling, and marketing are not permissible. Please take a moment to acquaint yourself with these important guidelines. If you have questions, contact the list manager noted in your welcome instructions. IIMHL reserves the right to suspend or terminate membership on all lists for members who violate these rules.

  • Do not challenge or attack others. The discussions on the lists are meant to stimulate conversation not to create contention. Let others have their say, just as you may.

  • Do not post commercial messages. The cyberspace term for this is spamming. Contact people directly with products and services that you believe would help them.

  • Use caution when discussing products. Information posted on the lists is available for all to see, and comments are subject to libel, slander, and antitrust laws.

  • All defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive, or illegal materials are strictly prohibited. Do not post anything in a ListServer message that you would not want the world to see or that you would not want anyone to know came from you.

  • Remember that IIMHL and other email list participants have the right to reproduce postings to this ListServer.

  • Send your messages to the most appropriate list(s) for the subject matter involved.
