Policy & Guidelines

The revised guidelines below are designed to outline in
detail the code of conduct which is expected from its

Please be sure that you understand these but feel free to
contact the Group Owner if you want further clarification.

1       This list is primarily set up for UK users of Access
Technology to discuss any technical problems which are
related to either the hardware or software they are using.

2       Members can discuss access products in relation to
mainstream software or hardware.

3       The group is UK based but membership is open to
international subscribers.

4       The group is made up from technology users of all
walks of life.  Knowledge and experience is vast amongst its
members.  It is therefore an excellent resource for new
members and those less experience to be able to ask
questions.  Irrespective of your level of knowledge or
experience, you should not be afraid to ask something which
you may feel is silly or not important.  Chances are that
someone else wanted to know the same thing or perhaps didn't
think of it.

5       Personal comments or remarks of a slanderous or
derogatory nature directed to any of the group's members
will not be tolerated.

6       Grievances between members should be directed to the
list owner and not aired on list.

7       The list owner reserves the right to terminate or
ban any member who contravenes the guidelines despite
previous warnings and, without notice.

8       All messages sent to the group should be in plain

9       No file attachments are permitted.

10      Try to avoid reply messages such as 'me to' and 'I
thought that'.

11      This group is not a platform to air personal
grievances against any one company.  For example, minor
delays in receiving software or goods.

12      Please keep subject lines on topic.  Where the
subject content changes, please amend the subject heading
before sending.

Advertising Policy

The following guidelines should be closely followed:

1       Blatant advertising is not in any way permitted on
this list.  This can be defined as advertising complete
outlines of the products and services which a company can
offer along with prices.  

2       No company or product press releases are to be sent.

3       Information however is important for this group's
membership and small notices no larger than one screen of
text can be sent outlining briefly the product or
announcement and directing people to a website address so
they can have the choice of whether or not they want to read
about it.

4       If you consider that your posting can be interpreted
as an announcement, please put ANNOUNCEMENT at the beginning
of the subject line.

5       Companies or individuals who overstep this will
firstly be given a warning and asked to ensure this doesn't
happen again.

6       Where step 5 is ignored, the company or individual
will be removed without notice.

Please follow these guidelines as best as possible and make
the group an even better resource.
