    Hello Wayne,

    Please feel free to post this message publicly on Ed Koon's BBS.
    Although I am sure Ed is already fully aware of this document, as
    it is posted in public each and every month in the fidonews echo
    for all to see, not everybody on docsplace may be aware of these


    This message was from MODERATOR to ALL,
    originally in conference Fidonews
    and was forwarded to you by LEE LOFASO.
    Rules for the Fidonews Echo
    Revised: 2004-05-31


    This is the Fidonews Echo. Area tag: FIDONEWS


    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.


    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).


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


    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
