NO CROSS POSTING practices on the DNSO server



NO CROSS POSTING practices on the DNSO server

1 May 2001

This is the summary of NO CROSS POSTING practices implemented on the DNSO server.

  1. NO CROSS POSTING Rules - implementation for the DNSO GA lists (Main List and Specific Purposes Lists):

    1. The no cross posting applies to ALL GA lists as well as several well known other lists.
    2. The end user (and maths) perspective prevails: if a person subscribes to List-One, but NOT to List-Two, he/she does not wish to get an e-mail from List-Two.
    3. It was suggested that each list appoints a "rapporteur" to provide periodic updates to the Main List.

  2. NO CROSS POSTING Rules - implementation for the NC WGs lists:

    1. The no cross posting applies to ALL WGs lists.
    2. The end user (and maths) perspective prevails: if a person subscribes to List-One, but NOT to List-Two, he/she does not wish to get an e-mail from List-Two.
    3. Each WGs has two Co-Chairs, one from the NC and one elected by the group. The NC Co-Chair acts as liaison with the NC.

  3. POSTING Rules for the NC lists (Main List and Specific Purposes Lists):

    1. Only the NC members, DNSO Secretariat and Scribe, ICANN Board and Staff, and the GA Chair and Alternate Chair are allowed to post to the Names Council lists.
    2. The NC Working Groups shall communicate with the NC through "liaison co-Chair", who is the NC member.
    3. The GA shall communicate with the NC through Chair or Alternate Chair.
    4. The NC may decide to adapt these posting rules at any time.

  4. POSTING Rules for the special purpose announce@dnso.org list:

    1. Only the DNSO Secretariat may write to announce@dnso.org list.

EASY TO REMEMBER:

  1. In summary: more CC and To, less are the chances it will get to go to any of the lists.
  2. If somebody is member of many lists and wishes to share some topic with any of them he/she shall write to all of them separately.
