Please review the policy and the etiquette below.
ASM Listserv General Policy
1. The ASM accepts no responsibility for the opinions and information posted by users
other than the ASM.
2. Do not post any defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive, anticompetitive
or illegal materials. The ASM does not condone and will not be responsible for any such
materials or resulting liability, including antitrust liability. In no event will ASM be
liable for any special, indirect or consequential damages or any damages whatsoever
resulting from loss of use, data or profits, arising out of or in connection with the use
or performance of any information posted on this site.
3. Do not post any information protected by copyright without the permission of the
copyright owner. By sending information via the ASM listserv, the sending party warrants
and represents that it owns the copyright to such information, or has received permission
from the person or entity who owns the copyright to such information. By posting
information to the ASM listserv the posting party grants the ASM and users of the ASM
listserv the non-exclusive right and license to display, copy, publish, distribute,
transmit, print, and use such information. Subject to the grant of this license, the
posting party retains any other rights that the party may have to such information.
4. The ASM does not actively monitor the site for inappropriate postings and does not on
its own undertake editorial control of postings. In particular do not post commercial
messages, such as promotional announcements, advertising, product-related press releases,
or other commercial use. In the event that any inappropriate posting is brought to the
ASM's attention, the ASM will take all appropriate action.
5. Federal anti-trust laws make it illegal for competitors or potential competitors to fix
prices in any way. This prohibition applies to discussion of specific prices, costs, or
rate structures among ASM members. The financial and criminal penalties for violating this
law are very serious.
6. The ASM reserves the right to terminate access to any user who does not abide by these
Discussion group participants should pay careful attention to the general policy
guidelines. Some general tips to enhance the quality and readership of discussion groups
are provided as follows:
1. All postings should be signed with the subscriber's name and e-mail address. This is
called a "signature" or "tag line" and helps identify you to the
people who read your message. If the posting is an announcement, include contact
information, such as phone, fax and e-mail address.
2. Subscribers should be willing to make their names known. Subscribers will not be
allowed to conceal their names from being seen on a list, and may not post anonymous
3. Postings to the groups should contain questions, comments or information that is
relevant to the group topic and of interest to the entire group. If you want to question
the opinions and information presented by others, please do not challenge or attack these
people by "flaming". If you have a differing opinion, please support your
opinion or comments and use them to express yourselves in a professional manner.
Subscribers can learn and benefit from qualified responses to situations or questions.
4. When replying to a message, include the parts of the previous message which are
pertinent to your point or comment. When possible, delete the header information from the
previous message, or any other non-essential text. This will make the message more
readable for others and help reduce the time it takes for those with dial-up connections
to retrieve their mail.
5. Non-relevant topic messages, personal and test messages should be sent directly to the
administrative e-mail address, not via the discussion group.
6. Do not write postings in all capital letters. This is considered "screaming",
and is not appropriate on the Internet. To emphasize or draw attention to text, enclose it
7. If inappropriate messages occur and/or guidelines are not followed, subscribers may
want to complain about the posting. They should not reply with their complaints to the
entire discussion group. This distracts the group from the main discussion topic to a
focus on network etiquette. Subscribers should reply with complaints and protests directly
to the moderator/manager.
