|For over 6 years, the "UK Moders" mailing list has been the meeting point for DM fans from around the UK. It was set up in response to the absence of a UK-centric list. It's not a xenophobic list and non-UK fans are welcome to join in, on the understanding that most people on the list are in the UK and thus the conversation will be UK-centric. To join the list via email, click here and send the resultant email (no need to type anything else).
So who is DMUK? You are! The web/list owner is Woj. http://www.dmuk.org/
Didn't EVER need rules until 1997! Gee, the list has been fine for YEARS. The BIGGEST problems: 1. Religion, 2. people NOT reading the FAQ. So, now we have rules (they've been growing since about April 1997):
SOME RULES (violations could get you removed/banned from the list): =================================================================== 1. Do not start "polls" asking people for their favorite song. 2. Do not respond to "polls" asking people for their favorite song. 3. Do not write "test" messages to the list. 4. Do not send files to the list. 5. In Netscape Mail, Microsoft Mail and the like, turn off the thing for including fonts and formatting, and the inclusion of styles. 6. Please don't talk about illegal software or registration codes like for MP3 stuff. 7. If you ever have questions about the list being down, DO NOT mail the list asking about it. That DOESN'T MAKE SENSE now does it? Check the web site. 8. DO NOT SEND: mime or multi-part messages or messages including a PGP signature. 9. If you are going to include a signature, keep it 4 lines or less. 10. If using MS Mail or Netscape, TURN OFF HTML inclusion in your messages! 11. Do NOT start or participate in public religious discussions! This always ends up pissing everybody off, and EVERYBODY loses! You have your religion, others have theirs (or none). Leave it at that!! This is NOT a religious forum! The purpose of this is to not have "insulting" conversations and "religion bashing". Religiom/Spirituality related to the music is fine, just don't let it turn into the above. 12. When replying and quoting a message on the list, try to attribute it properly, and REMOVE un-needed data. Trim it down! A one line reply to a 40 line message (wasteful) could be hazardous to your health. 13. Do _NOT_ quote the "footer" of messages when replying. The Internet is busy enough and does not need to have more useless data on it, plus, your message will get a new one. 14. No virus reports should be posted to the list. 15. DO _NOT_ send messages to the list asking if it is DOWN... If it were down, what use would that make? Think about it. Go to the website and look there, if it's down, there would likely be a message there stating such, OR, if there were a larger problem, you wouldn't get there, either.
