Hello again everyone,
Several months ago I posted the message;
-> Hello All,
-> I am trying to develop a policy statement to distribute to faculty members on
-> campus who are being given the ability to run a local list. I was wondering
-> if anyone knows of an encapsulated version of questions such as;
-> What do I do with rude/offensive users?
-> What responsibilities does a list manager have to the recipients?
-> What type of messages should I screen? (Offensive language? Disagreements?)
-> What responsibility does a list manager have to keep the topic on track?
-> How does a list manager keep the topic on track?
-> What should policy be when the list manager leaves? Takes a sabatical? Goes on
-> I would appreciate opinions or a direction to pursue such research. I thank
-> you for your help.
-> David Doherty
I received a little bit of help and a great deal of interest with regards to
this posting. Many of you informed me that you knew of no such document but
requested that I send my final copy to individuals or the list. Since November
I have had other work which required more attention and have not had the time
to work on this document, now I am back on the case.
What I need from the list is any kind of official or unofficial policy with
regards to the above posting, opinions or comments included. What I will do
with this is attempt to construct a policy statement from all of your input,
which I will forward to the list upon completion. Thanks to all of you whom
have already sent either policy or ideas my way, I have saved them all. If any
list managers can help with information on this topic, I would again, greatly
