[ga] DNSO ROR Comments
>The following entities have the right to post to the GA mailing list:
>- GA members who are members of the GA mailing list, posting in their own name,
> who have posting rights in good standing
>- The staff of the DNSO list management
This rule will not allow posting of an anonymous or pseudo-anonymous message. It may be desirable or necessary for a member of this list to post in such a way to express his or her interest without revealing her identity.
>The following rules apply to content of messages on the GA list:
>- The messages must be relevant to the business of the GA
>- The messages must observe a minimum of decorum, including:
> - Not indulging in personal attacks, insults or slander
> - Not using offensive language
>- If the GA Chair or Sergeant-at-arms asks for a limit to the number of posts
> per person per day, this must be respected
>- The size of messages should be kept reasonable
I could not tell you what "business" we are supposed to accomplish here. I would agree to decide to collectively limit our topics of discussion. But why should it be that Harald or another Chair person will single-handily decide our collective "business"?
I also believe the term "offensive language" is ambiguous. I believe that we should enforce one set of rules and standards verse one person, and a different set of another person. More specificity is needed.
>If the GA Chair or Sergeant-at-arms asks for a limit to the number of posts
>per person per day, this must be respected
I imagine this would apply to the list as a whole. I do not believe people should be penalized for adamantly asserting their position by responding to multple postings to which they disagree.
> A Sergeant-At-Arms may impose 2 sanctions against offenders:
The Sergeant-at-arms therefore has "discretion" to selectively enforce this policy. This could have potentially dangerous results.
I find the cure worse than the disease. I am opposed to implementing such restrictions on this mailing list. I am perfectly capable of hitting my delete key for messages I choose not to read.
