 >
 >   Welcome to RUSHTALK.
 >   RUSHTALK is a free* listserv service for the discussion of current
 >   events and happenings.  While RUSHTALK does tend to have a
"conservative"
 >   bent, liberals are always welcome.
 >
 >   To contribute to RUSHTALK, send a mail message to
 >
 >      rushtalk at athena.csdco.com
 >
 >   Your message will be redistributed to the rest of the subscribers on
 >   the list.
 >
 >   Frequently asked questions (and answers) by catagory:
 >
 >   1)  How do I unsubscribe?
 >   2)  How do set my subscription for digests?
 >   3)  Who is the listowner/moderator?
 >   4)  Acceptable Use/Content policies

 >   1)  How do I unsubscribe?
 >
 >   To unsubscribe from RUSHTALK, send a mail message to:
 >
 >      listserv at athena.csdco.com
 >
 >   with the *body* of the message (Subject: lines are ignored) containing
 >   the words:
 >
 >      signoff rushtalk
 >
 >   You will receive notification that you have signed off of RUSHTALK.
 >
 >
 >   2)  How do set my subscription for digests?
 >
 >   Digesting is an option on most listserv software that consolidates the
 >   mail from the list into one large mail message.  If you find that
 >   receiving a number of messages throughout the day is annoying, you may
 >   find that the digest option is more to your liking.
 >
 >   To set digests for RUSHTALK, send a mail message to:
 >
 >      listserv at athena.csdco.com
 >
 >   with the *body* of the message (Subject: lines are ignored) containing
 >   the words:
 >
 >      set rushtalk digests
 >
 >   You will receive notification that you have been set for digests.
 >
 >
 >   3)  Who is the listowner/moderator?
 >
 >   The listowner and moderator for RUSHTALK is John B. Hammes.  He can
 >   be contacted at economic at effingham.net.  Please feel free to send any
 >   questions, comments or problems to the moderator.
 >
 >
 >   4)  Acceptable Use/Content policies
 >
 >   RUSHTALK is for the discussion of current events and topics in the
United
 >   States of America.  We do welcome the views of others from around the
 >   world, however.
 >
 >   Reposting articles, documents, etc., from other sources is strongly
 >   discouraged on RUSHTALK. RUSHTALK is a discussion group, not a
reposting
 >   group.  If you'd like to cite a web address for subscribers to go to
 >   read an interesting or relevant article or posting somewhere, that's
not
 >   a problem.  Even quoting short excerpts from an article is acceptable,
 >   but once again, posting the entire article is not allowed.
 >
 >   If a thread of conversation strays too much from the groups topic I
 >   will usually wait to see if it dies out by itself.  If not, I will
 >   post a friendly "this discussion doesn't belong here" message.  A good
 >   example of what is and what is not on topic:
 >
 >     Discussions of Armenia and it's relations to the USA are allowed,
 >     especially if Armenia is in the news of late.  Explanations of
 >     historical events, and how they pertain to recent events, are
 >     certainly welcome.  However, arguments about certain aspects of
 >     Armenia's past are off-topic.
 >
 >
 >   *RUSHTALK is *not* a forum for advertising; advertising is not
allowed.
 >
 >   Let me repeat that: ADVERTISING IS NOT ALLOWED.  Advertising on this
 >   list will result in a formal complaint to your system administrators.
 >   If you make the sad mistake of posting from a school, I will be
calling
 >   your administration to see if they allow their computing resources
 >   to be used in this way.
 >
 >   Advertising is defined, for our purposes, as any announcement or
 >   statement for a group, cause, or business that is unrelated to
 >   a current topic being discussed on the RUSHTALK list or would not
 >   fall under the general heading of "Discussion of Current Events".
 >   If you are not sure where your message would fall, please feel free
 >   to send a copy to the moderator (economic at effingham.net) for a review
 >   before posting it to RUSHTALK.  I will be happy to review it for you.
 >
 >   I reserve the right to decide just what is and what is not an
 >   advertisement - 99.999% of violators will simply receive a polite
"Please
 >   don't do that" message from me.
 >
 >
 >   The moderator reserves the right to unsubscribe anyone, at any time,
 >   for any reason.  I haven't had to do this more than twice in over
 >   two years, so please don't think I'm pretending to be king.  I know
 >   better.  If you feel that my moderation is not satisfactory, you have
 >   the right as a list subscriber to call a vote on installing a new
 >   moderator.  The votes will be tallied by an agreed-upon third party
 >   and announced to the list.  The only stipulation to this is that you
 >   must name who the new moderator would be - you can't simply say "I
 >   don't want the current moderator".
 >
 >
 >   Abusive language and generally hostile posts are highly discouraged -
 >   a good yardstick for this is "If you would be uncomfortable saying it
 >   in front of your mother, it would be wise to refrain from it on
 >   RUSHTALK".  That's not to say that some of the discussions don't
 >   get heated or volatile - they do - but please keep ad hominem
statements
 >   and foul language to a minimum.
 >
 >
 >   Once again, welcome to RUSHTALK.  We're glad to have you with us, and
 >   we hope you'll find our discussions interesting and enlightening.
 >
 >   I wish to thank cdsco.com and, especially, John Nebel for allowing
 >   RUSHTALK to be hosted on athena.csdco.com.
