Rules for the Fidonews Echo
Revised: 2004-05-31

Description:

This is the Fidonews Echo. Area tag: FIDONEWS

Moderator:

The Fidonews editor, as listed in the nodelist and in the banner of
the most recent issue of the Fidonews weekly publication, is the
permanent moderator of this echo.

Policy:

The Echopol1 policy applies where applicable, with the exception that
characters above 0x7e hex, 126 decimal (sometimes known as HI ASCII)
*are* permitted (i.e. para V.18.a does not apply).

Availability:

Every sysop is encouraged to make this echo available to any user,
that's interested in reading and writing in it.

Purpose:

The purpose of this echo is the discussion of recent articles (within
the last two weeks) in the Fidonews publication.

-=-=-=-=-

General Rules:

1. The moderator's ruling is final.

2. No vulgar language. This includes, but is not limited to, flames
and profanities.

3. Discuss only articles printed in the Fidonews Publication. A certain
amount of straying from this is however expected and encouraged.

4. In the event that some ingenious person figures out a way to bypass
these rules, the moderator reserves the right to make a rule to
end the situation.

5. Articles are not to be submitted nor will they be accepted in the
echo. If you can write a comment in the echo, you can just as easily
make that a personal letter to the editor -- everyone in the echo
will still see it, only a few days later.


Fidonews Editor, 2:2/2, Moderator
