Subject: 	Netiquette and Abuse of Membership Privileges

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

At times in my role as moderator/editor of this list, I send PRIVATE 
communications to members to explain, for example, the reasons for my 
rejecting a submission.

Proper netiquette has it that one should seek the permission of the 
sender of a private correspondence before forwarding that message to 
ANYONE else.

It has come to my attention that some of my private correspondences are 
being forwarded to others without my permission. I find this activity 
not only irritating but an abuse of one's membership privileges. If you 
receive from another member such a private correspondence of mine, 
please let me know by copying that message to me with the polite request 
to the forwarder to cease bothering you.

With this formal warning, if I learn of such behavior in the future, I 
will remove the offending party from the membership and block all 
messages from that person to me.

I was disappointed when threats of legal actions against me forced me to 
include a disclaimer on all digests from SHAKSPER; now it appears that I 
will also have to include a message on all of my e-mails in my function 
as editor/moderator:

This message is a PRIVATE correspondence from Hardy M. Cook, the 
Editor/Moderator of SHAKSPER, and is intended SOLELY for the recipient 
and NOT be to shared with anyone else without permission.
