Subject: IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: SHAKSPER Netiquette
In response to a recent series of postings and responses to them, I made
a statement at the end of last week on my ideas about self-moderation
and self-government, on my requests for members to pre-format their
submissions, and on my suggestions to members for dealing with messages
they object to.
Over the weekend, I gathered these suggestions for collegial conduct on
SHAKSPER together and had Eric Luhrs mount them as a webpage accessible
from a link off the SHAKSPER homepage. They are voluntary and are not in
and of themselves reasons for censure or expulsion. On the page, a
summary of the main points to be used as a quick reference is followed
by a lengthily message explaining the reasons behind the suggestions.
This page can be found at http://www.shaksper.net/netiquette.html.
Despite all my best intentions to rely on self-moderation and
self-government, some threads, nevertheless, get out of hand. I think
that the thread on Othello's Name has and I am no longer going to
distribute posting related to it.
